    GP @ Hand Protest ,

    FULHAM,
    Corner of Lillie Rd & North End Rd SW6 1NL
    Moving on to 145 North End Rd ​

    Patients and GPs gather for protest against GP at Hand
    GP at Hand is an online GP service based in Fulham. Its part of the NHS but seems to "cherry pick" relatively young, fit (and therefore profitable) patients leaving ordinary GPs to care for the more complex patients with fewer resources.
    Many fear it will destroy our GP services over time.
    East End GPs contacted SOH offering to work together to organise a protest outside the HQ in West London following an earlier event in East London that attracted loads of publicity.
