Wigan and Bolton health authority is currently 'in the embryonic stages' of establishing a database to look for trends in cases where patients are struck off GP lists. It is also extending an existing conciliation service to patients who are removed without being given a reason. The moves follow a case criticised by health service commissioner Michael Buckley, in which Leigh GP Dipak Trivedi removed an entire family from his list after a dispute with one member. Questioned alongside the GP, HA chief executive Michael Ruane told the Commons public administration committee that he believed the conciliation system could have resolved such a dispute.
