LMC warns against GPs using practice address to register homeless patients

Comment

Perhaps we need to be able to register people with NO address -without dishonestly filling in address fields. One for NHS Digital to sort. Then secondary care (or others) will realise that the patient is homeless and will have the same difficulty contacting them that Practices do. Maybe another reason for national ID cards -we just need to know who the person is and that they are entitled to be registered.
