'Uber-style' private GP appointment service primed for national rollout


|Harry Longman | Other healthcare professional|16 Sep 2016 10:33am As long as in-hours services are staffed to provide NHS services and can demonstrate this, - it's all above board. Rule of thumb would be that the GP seeing the patient is not rostered in to see NHS patients at the same time. If NHS wants to issue solid specific advice on what is expected from the GMS contract, then PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let them. NHS can't have the cake and eat it. I understand that this looks like a loophole and probably is one, however this is the stick that has been used to beat the GP's for a decade. Good to get on the other end of it for a change.
