GP-led health centre doesn't bother me
I get one or two patients a week at most going to the new local GP-led health centre so it's not much of a problem so far ('GP-led health centre turns to cinema ads in bid to win patients').
I run a 2,500-list practice within a block of two large practices - with lists of 8,000 and 13,000 patients - so we all compete and patients choose the style of practice they want. This new centre about a mile away has not been a worry so far, and is under the close eye of our GP-run out-of-hours service.
A PCT practice has also been trying to develop from the same premises for about two years now so I think this is just all about making better use of the new building and offering patients another option should they want it.
