City Conservatives have called for a review of the GP provision across the city after MK came 208th out of 211th in a nation wide patient survey for GP satisfaction.

Having fought for better GP provision on the Eastern flank, following the closure of the Willen Surgery, Milton Keynes Conservatives have continued to champion the cause for local residents.

This time, Conservative Councillor Alice Bramall, chair of the health and adult social care committee on Milton Keynes Council, has called for a cross party review group to investigate why GP access is so poor across the city.

Councillor Alice Bramall said: “Healthcare services and access to healthcare is vitally important to everyone and it is incredibly concerning to see Milton Keynes appearing so low in the recent survey.

“I am pleased to have been able to pull together this cross party review to get to the bottom of why residents are finding it so difficult to see their GP.

“With the hospital seeing more admissions than ever before, it is vital that GP health services are operating fully and I am determined that we will get to the bottom of the problem and find solutions with support from the Clinical Commissioning Group and local GP practices.”
