GPs may not work in polyclinics

14th May 2008

Up to a quarter of GPs may refuse to work in polyclinics if the Department of Health presses ahead in offering abortion in the community.

The warning comes from the Christian Medical Fellowship and follows a poll of 309 GPs which found that 24% would not sign abortion referral forms. The group’s chairman Dr Trevor Stammers, who is a GP in south London, said that this indicates a significant number of GPs would be put off working in polyclinics that performed abortions.
