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

Comment

I need some help understanding this as I don’t understand contracts well (having skipped the whole partnership thing so far). If they can do this i.e. claim GMS money whilst being allowed to cherrypick patients then surely any GMS provider can? And whilst I know the majority of practices would not pursue this either through compassion for their patients or actually wanting to do more than pander to the worried well, I can help but think less scrupulous providers will do so and this will destabilise an already decimated primary care?
