It's goodbye to the golden hello for GPs
GPs are calling on their PCT to maintain a GP-led team to treat asylum seekers after it closed the dedicated practice they had been based in.
Central Derby PCT shut the Sai practice because it had become 'financially unviable' after registering only 500 people since it was set up in March 2003. Its patients will now be dispersed to other practices.
Derby LMC chair Dr John Grenville said most practices were over capacity and would need the team's expertise.
The trust said it expected to approve a mobile scheme for 'entrants'.
