Pick your own surgeon

1st July 2008

Under new plans for the NHS, patients will be given the power to select the surgeon they wish to carry out their operation.

The government's recently published constitution has said that the health service will allow patients to choose which GP they wish to visit. "You have the right to choose your GP practice and to be accepted by the practice unless there are reasonable grounds to refuse in which case you will be informed of those reasons," it says.
