Online GP provider makes push for patients to switch from their practices

Comment

So the complicated patients that take so much of our time will remain with us and the easy patients that can be dealt with quickly will be cherry picked. Presumably, as it is a GMS contract, they are rewarded with the same amount of money per patient per year for far less work. Having left their previous GP practice would those same GP practices automatically re-register patients that were dissatisfied with the Babylon service? Why can’t all GP practices cherry pick? If we had no complicated patients we could double our list sizes and double our income! That is probably their business model.
