When late last year the sole practitioner GP at Barton Surgery Plymstock handed back his NHS contract overnight, it created a real challenge for those responsible for the provision of primary care services in this area and massive disruption for many of its patients.
I do not want Big Ben to bong or church bells to ring. The issue was divisive enough without rubbing people’s faces in it. We also have a job of healing to do. The Brexit debate ripped a hole in our country. Now that Brexit is a fait accomplis, the healing process can begin
As I made clear in my election material, my two priorities for this Parliament are improving access to GP services for this constituency and taking effective action on climate change. I will be writing about primary care next week.
Happy New Year to one and all. Parliament reassembled this week with a very new mood: the people have spoken and we know what we have to do. The EU withdrawal bill is cruising its way through Parliament and sent to the Upper House next week.
I seem to have reached the age where hurtling back to London for the extraordinary session last Saturday has taken a toll on me. I start this week feeling sluggish, and not relishing another week of high Brexit drama.
