Darzi centres will make GP access harder for poor

16th March 2009

A report on health inequality by the health select committee has expressed concern that poorer parts of the community will have difficulty visiting polyclinics to see their GP.

The report said access for "lower socio-economic groups" could be affected by Lord Darzi's plans for the new centres. The report stated that if the GP-led health centres affected care, primary care trusts should "take steps to revert to traditional, more local patterns of service delivery".
