The location choices of general practice in Scotland

The location choices of general practice in Scotland

There is a perception of geographic disparity in access to general practice care. Government and local health boards can intervene and provide practices in underserved areas. Nevertheless, it is important to understand what factors influence the location choices of General Practitioners (GPs) who are independent contractors. This study analyses the factors that influence where GPs choose to locate their practice in response to spatial factors.
