Premises funding

Q: We are planning to expand our cramped surgery into the PCT-owned clinic next door. We are at a stage where both we and the PCT are going to sell our premises to a third-party developer that will refurbish the much larger premises for our use. The district valuer seems happy to accept the threefold-plus increase in market rent value. However, our solicitor advises caution, saying there are vague suggestions that cost and notional rent may be abolished and GPs could be given a 'flat amount' according to list size. We would be badly out of pocket if this happened. Are these rumours true?
