Removing patients from your list of registered patients
Healthwatch Lincolnshire has received a number of complaints from patients about being removed from GP practice lists. Healthwatch Lincolnshire has done some research and has found that some of the removals were done for inappropriate reasons, and that some practices have removed more patients than would generally be expected.
Healthwatch has asked the LMC to remind practices of the circumstances where patients can be removed from lists, and the proper process for doing this.
The LMC have created an information sheet for practices which is attached above.
