Revealed: How online GP company Babylon can sign up millions of patients

Comment

I'd be interested to read NHSE's Equality Impact assessment which they no doubt conducted as part of this procurement. I should also be keen to understand how they will ensure that this GMS practice does not decline any patient seeking to register, nor unreasonably de-register any patient. Of even greater interest, if this initiative really takes off, will be the unintended consequence of thousands of low demand patients migrating and leaving other practices with the uneconomic residue of high demand, sick and frail patients. NHSE could be faced with a wave of practice closures and difficult reprocurements, which they will have brought on themselves.
