Babylon suffers continued block on plans to expand GP at Hand to Birmingham


"I am sick to death of the possibility that various people in the medical profession might be out there repeatedly misusing their position..." Strange comment, especially if from a doctor. The people in the medical profession most likely to be "repeatedly misusing their position" are those who have bypassed evidence, peer review and consultation to have sanctioned this poor model of primary care, regardless of its inability to serve a whole general practice population. Whether I need a smear, Home Treatment Team, or midwife care, being 100miles away matters. If it can't serve the entire local population, it isn't general practice.
