The London host CCG of GP at Hand has decided to maintain its position to block the service’s expansion to Birmingham.
The Government's flagship out-of-area registration scheme continues to have very low take-up with traditional GP practices.
The NHS has ‘a lot to learn’ from Babylon’s ‘phenomenal’ GP at Hand app, the chair of the RCGP has said.
The RCGP will back a second referendum on whether the UK should leave the EU, after GPs passed a motion in support of a ‘People’s Vote’.
Patients could be able to access their genomic sequence from their patient record in a similar way to accessing ‘bank account details’, the health secretary has said.
GPs could soon be able to access faster internet with BT’s ‘full fibre’ broadband, the health secretary has said.

The RCGP chair has called on the health secretary to clarify his position on GP at Hand after he endorsed the app for a national roll out earlier this month.
