GP campaign group calls for Babylon boycott until ‘full impact’ is known

A grassroots GP campaign group has called on GPs to boycott working with Babylon until the independent evaluation of its NHS service is complete and the ‘full impact’ of the model is known.

In a statement today, GP Survival said it ‘deplores’ NHS England’s decision to remove the block on private digital company’s expansion of its NHS services to the UK’s second-largest city.

The group – which has nearly 8,000 members – said it believes the Babylon GP at Hand model is ‘harmful’ and said there are ‘moral and ethical arguments’ that must be considered.
