Kent practices under threat

11th April 2008

GP practices in Kent say they could face financial ruin with the development of six new AMPS (Alternative Provider Medical Services) practices.

Staff in existing practices near Chatham believe redundancies will result as patient lists are divided between the six new health centres. Opponents say it confirms fears that health minister Lord Ara Darziā€™s new health centres will-destabilise existing practices. However, Medway PCT say Chatham was chosen because patients were struggling to register with a GP in the area and up to 8,000 new residents are expected within six years.
