The British Medical Association cautioned that a few patients may have taken additional medications superfluously or had the conclusion of their disease deferred as a result of the screw up.
“This is an intense occurrence, it ought to never have happened and it’s a case of what happens when the NHS tries to trim expenses by welcoming privately owned businesses to do work which they don’t do appropriately, the privately owned business for this situation being NHS Shared Business Services,” said Richard Vautrey, seat of the BMA’s GPs panel and a family specialist in Yorkshire.
