Manx care, caring if they have paid enough of me and you's money to all of there mates. Whom also happen to be directors. Should of just took all the extra cash these individuals are spending on OUR behalf and signed the whole island up to BUPA. The way its going would of been less expensive alternative

You could argue that the extra £3 million plus per year for the Manx care board could have been used better elsewhere.

Missed that. Has that been made public?

Where do these people move to that is the question?   With a wait of two or three weeks to get an appointment for a non urgent consultation with a doctor I would guess most surgeries are fully subscribed.

Maybe read the article, which says otherwise.

Why did they not just automatically move the patients registration to a GP practice within their catchment area rather than leaving it to the patients to sort out?.

 

If a practice closes I think they can, en masse to another in area practice. But I don’t think they can, for all sorts of reasons, forcefully move patients without consent from one practice to another.

This de registration is a last resort. The patients will/should have been written to first.

At least in part down to population increase in Ballasalla surgery catchment due to Reayrt Mie.

Because catchment areas deliberately overlap, so people usually have a choice.  In this case:

Residents of Foxdale and St Johns will now be required to sign up to Peel Medical Centre, or Snaefell Surgery which has indicated it's willing to accept new patients from these areas.

as some may prefer to have their GP in Douglas rather than Peel.  Those area aren't in Snaefell's current catchment, so they may be adjusting the boundaries because of the population change John referred to.  Apparently if you build lots of housing and nothing else, it may put pressure on existing facilities.  Who could have foreseen that?

This could be a reason for a catchment area - so that there is a limit on how far they need to travel. You know what the Manx are like for traveling more than four miles.

It’s down to things like home visits and weekend/out of hours cover.

Weekends/out of hours is now MEDS.

I stayed out of area for years on the understanding that they couldn’t come & see me.
