Ghostly practice revealed by GP
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.’
