Freedom to choose male doctor

Currently, where there are group practices, a woman patient can choose to see a woman doctor where the problem is female-only (and sometimes even when it isn't).

But there are also problems that are male-only. Sometimes a male patient would feel more comfortable discussing his issue with a man because a woman — purely because of her female sex and for no other reason — would be out of touch.

This choice should be available to men.

Freedom to choose G.P. outside the postcode area

Can David Cameron please reintroduce his idea given about two years ago that he would abolish the limit of post code ruling for patients in their choice of G.P. if he ever came to government. Some of us have wonderful doctors but if we have moved just outside the post code where he practises his practice manager tells us we can no longer be on their patient list. Please, Nick Clegg, please adopt this idea your self and give us a right of choice here!! Let us choose our own doctor and not one forced on us by a wretched post code restriction?
