Public Meeting on GP Services

Chesterfield-20140508-00319On Thursday evening I held a public meeting in response to major concerns about GP services in Staveley.

Since the Holywell Medical Group took over the surgery on Rectory Road a range of problems have emerged. I am working closely with Toby Perkins, Labour MP for Chesterfield, to get the situation sorted out as quickly as possible. We will continue to press NHS England and the local Care Commissioning Group to do this. Both agencies were present last night so that people could address their concerns to the them directly.The latest position is summarised in this statement from NHS England:

Read the Holywell Medical Group report by the Care Quality Commission here.

(The report is titled the Grange Family Health Centre as the practice will have registered one site with the CQC as its headquarters but the inspection covers all five of its sites.)
