GP at Hand practice adds another 2,500 patients


Facinating and infuriating... see the article on the Soho GPs. The contrast is striking. The playing field is not close to level. A small long standing struggling practice does not get support, but gets a CQC inspection. Babylon select 20,000 healthy subjects from 40,000 'applicants' and is seen as innovative. For the same cherry picking behavior, a private politically backed Babylon wins praise. The next step for the small Soho practice surely must be to stop the recruitment of a GP and to hire a lobbyist and a PR consultant to sell this as giving patients choice.
