Patients Get Freedom To Choose GP

We could soon be able to choose which doctors' surgery to register with, regardless of whether it's closest to where we live.

A pilot scheme's going to be carried out in five places, including Westminster, City and Hackney and Tower Hamlets.

Commuters are expected to benefit most as they'll be able to choose a practice near to their workplace.

The move will also allow patients to remain with an existing practice after moving house, and means parents can choose to register at a GP surgery near their children's school.

The year-long pilot scheme will begin in April.
