A few weeks ago, I found the NHS Choices page promoting the ‘Patient Choice Scheme’. I registered and left this comment:
I am a GP in Tower Hamlets, one of the sites chosen for this pilot. What the Department of Health is not telling you is that two of the 6 sites above (Tower Hamlets and City and Hackney) have refused to take part in this pilot in order to protect the local health economy and services to our local population.
The proposed policy to abolish GP practice boundaries is deeply flawed, but the Department will not tell you that.
For more information, see www.gpboundaries.org
I checked this afternoon, and noticed that my comment (which I thought had been accepted on 31/3/13) was missing. There are in fact no comments to this page. So I have tried again. My Comment on Choices website but somehow feel that it won’t be visible, ever, to anyone else.
