The choice is yours… if you live in Manchester, Nottingham or London
Manchester has been picked as one of three pilot cities for the Department of Heath’s new scheme to allow people to choose which GP they would like to use.
The aim of this scheme is to give people greater control over their choice of GPs. Such choice will allow people to register, or simply use as a one off, GPs located near their work, school or former home.
As Andrew Lansley said “patients should have the freedom to choose a GP practice that suits their lives, and not be restricted by geographical boundaries”. The funding for consultation only patients has currently been capped at £2m .
Our Healthcare Team at Myers Lister Price advises GPs on a whole range of issues including Partnership Agreements, wills, property matters and disputes.
