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


So.... A healthy woman signs up to Babylon for the convenience, depriving her old GP of a capitation fee. She then becomes pregnant, and Babylon "advise" her to register elsewhere. She approaches her old GP, who quite rightly turns her down. She complains and the GP is forced to take her back. A year later a healthy mother and baby re-register with Babylon. Or a previously healthy Babylonian develops terminal cancer. Will Babylon throw him to the wolves now he needs home visits? Totally immoral.
