A quick guide to de-registering patients


This is a good article that clearly sets out the contractual requirements and pitfalls for practices, particularly the need to document all removals and the reasons for them. At least one high profile GP has fallen foul of this before, practices should bear in mind as inappropriate removals tend to be dealt with contractually by PCTs / NCB NATs (not by the GMC, as previously suggested by Pulse).
