Sainsbury's plans a rapid expansion of in-store GP surgery programme


I can only assume this is a pilot for rolling out Sainsburys own GP service (as opposed to just renting premisis). I disagree with the historical views. The patient should choose what's best for them, not dictated by GPs. But the patients should also remember they'll get what they choose - if they want to be seen in a supermarket, they'll get what's offered in supermarket. Impersonal, profit driven, unsympathetic, cost effective service.
