Abolishing practice boundaries will divert care from those who really need it

Comment

Many patients who move within the general area but outside their Practice boundaries will benefit, as they have built up trust and a relationship with their GP and don't want the uncertainty of looking for a new relationship. And the Practice could of course refuse to sign up newcomers living too far away. I am aware of many patients who have moved into flats beyond their GPs practice boundary, but when purchasing our Health eCard beg us not to inform their GP.
