Ghostly prac­tice re­vealed by GP

The Oban Times - - News -

GHOSTS do ex­ist, a GP from Oban told a meet­ing of Lorn and Is­lands Health and Care Lo­cal­ity Fo­rum on Mon­day evening.

These ‘ghosts’, NHS High­land’s Lorn and Is­lands lo­cal­ity di­rec­tor Dr Richard Wil­son ex­plained, are peo­ple reg­is­tered at a med­i­cal or den­tal prac­tice who do not ac­tu­ally ex­ist, but still ap­pear on the sys­tem.

Dr Wil­son said: ‘We have had a num­ber of dif­fer­ent ex­pla­na­tions for these anom­alies.

‘In some cases we have even had a num­ber of dif­fer­ent peo­ple us­ing the same name to re­ceive med­i­cal treat­ment.’
