Pathology lab's stubbornness puts patients at risk, say GPs

Dr Bhupinder Kohli's practice in east London is the first to operate from premises funded by NHS Lift.

The £5 million, three-story surgery, complete with atrium and roof terraces, is shared with two other practices and also houses a team of health professionals.

Dr Kohli, a GP in east London, said his previous practice was in a cramped Victorian terrace full of mouse droppings ­ and staff morale has rocketed since the move.

The only downside is he has fewer consulting rooms ­ though they are bigger and more accessible.

'I would recommend moving into a state-of-the-art building without risking a penny yourself,' he said. 'But it comes at a cost as you lose the long-term financial gain of having your rent paid and if you want to change something you need permission.'
