Patients unfairly struck off GPs' lists over minor disagreements
Some are taking a "zero tolerance" approach to alleged abuse by removing whole families without warning, after a dispute with just one individual, according to a worrying report.
The Ombudsoman found such action was often "unfair and disproportionate."
The Health Service Ombudsman's review into complaint handling by the NHS in England in 2010-11, published today (TUES), has found that 'de-registration' complaints accounted for more than a fifth (21 per cent) of all those it investigated about GP surgeries - up from 15 per cent in 2009-10.
