Speaking exclusively to GP newspaper, Mr Burnham said the policy to scrap practice boundaries would ‘give the public the chance to vote with their feet'.
He added: ‘Perhaps GPs have to think about investing, and services, in a different way. If they're not keeping up to date with services and facilities that people expect these days, they can expect to lose patients.'
