GPs told they must register people staying with friends, homeless and boat-dwellers

Does it matter who registers with practice? Lets makes it a policy that we will continue to give appointments as needed in our contract and not see a single extra patient. If waiting time goes up, so be it. lets direct patient to local MP and let him respond that why waiting times are up. If medicine budget goes up . simply answer CCG that patients demand it & we can't do anything about it. If referral rate goes up so be it. not our problem. In simple language we should stop gate-keeping role . Its not our job to save this outdated NHS which does not recognize our value. I am fed up trying to protect this NHS who does not want to protect me.
