- They forward to the new GP and ask that they inform the other health departments involved that they are the new GP .
- If it is urgent . They contact their previous patient and let them know they have a letter for them and ask for their new address.
Why we need the creation NHS Shared Business Services (SBS) to deliver mail and re-route mail seems absud . What’s the rest of the country doing ?? I guess they must just using the the Royal mail ??

Most like the poor idividual who “whistle blew ” will be forced to leave.
