The start date for Patient Choice has been revised until January 2015, the choice of GP practice scheme will be introduced throughout England. This means that you will be able to register with a practice that is convenient to you, for example near your workplace, so long as the practice is taking part in the scheme. If you fall ill whilst at home the GP practice near your work is under no obligation to visit you at home. For those patients who register out-of-area (patients choosing to register outside of their practice’s catchment area), NHS England will be responsible for organising home visits. As a practice we will not be participating in this scheme.
