HC Deb 12 December 1990 vol 182 c428W
Mr. Allen

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what information he has on patients being required to change general practitioners because of their failure to agree to have such tests as cervical smears.

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

There have been a number of allegations, but no hard evidence to suggest that patients are being forced to change GP for such reasons. Such behaviour would be highly unprofessional.
