Fragmented care leads to errors

Dr Anita Bloor believes that the fragmentation of care which she believes will take place under the new contract will lead to practices making more errors in treatment of patients.

Dr Bloor, a GP in Nottingham, said: 'Unless the areas of care are very well signposted, many patients could slip through the net and symptoms overlooked.'

She added: 'This is of a

particular concern for the most vulnerable. With the prospect of patients being seen by many specialists the core identity of patients could be lost.'
