Plans to pick your own GP
Saturday 31 December 2011
Patients will be able to choose which GP practice to register with, regardless of whether it is closest to their home, under a pilot scheme announced yesterday.
For example, commuters could choose a doctor's surgery near their workplace, regardless of practice boundaries.
The year-long pilot scheme will begin in April in Westminster, City & Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Manchester, Salford and Nottingham City primary care trusts. GP practices will join up on a voluntary basis.
