Polyclinics threaten care for elderly

9th June 2008

The British Medical Association's Patient Liaison Group have said the elderly "will be the worst affected by polyclinics".

The PLG have placed an advertisement in House magazine to urge MPs to discuss polyclinic proposals with Primary Care Trusts in their areas. Juliet Dunmur and Natalie Teich of the BMA's PLG said: "There could be problems of travel and access to general practice. Proper consultation with patients, the public and local GPs has not taken place".
