NHS Choices removes 200 reviews over suspicions of practice staff involvement

16 July 2018 – Pulse Today

NHS Choices has removed nearly 200 patient reviews of GP practices this year over suspicions of practice staff involvement.

One patient at a practice in Somerset was asked to prove that she was not an employee and did not have a connection with the surgery ‘beyond that of the normal patient-GP relationship’ after posting a five-star review on the site.

NHS Choices emphasised that this represents 0.25% of the 80,000 reviews posted on the website.
