GPs in deprived areas 'lose out on patient funding'

New research suggests that GPs in deprived areas are not getting the funding they need to tackle health inequalities and have less time to devote to patients.

The Scottish government says it is reviewing funding formulae.

BBC Scotland health correspondent Eleanor Bradford reports.
