The complete nucleotide sequence of the 5566 bp rRNA tandem repeat unit from the genome of the amitochondrial human intestinal parasite Giardia intestinalis is presented. The sequence starts at a Kpnl site in the 16S rRNA gene used for cloning and previous mapping studies (1, 2). There are only minor discrepancies within a short sequence previously(More)
Indicative prescribing amounts, and the equivalent prescribing element of funds in the case of fund-holding practices, are now an established part of UK general practice. This paper examines the implications of variations in GP prescribing behaviour for the determination of prescribing budgets. Using regression analysis, the extent to which variations in(More)

This paper examines the limited evidence to date on the effects of fundholding. Four areas of concern are identified: priority setting by fundholders; the management(More)
