I welcome more funding for GPs, as many Colne Valley residents struggle to get appointments particularly at short notice. If this helps to reduce waiting lists it can only be a good thing.
That said, we all know it’s a temporary fix to a long-standing problem of chronic underfunding. I’ll be speaking to local doctors to hear their opinions, but what do you think?
I’d love to hear your views below, and if you are a clinician please email me your thoughts in the utmost confidence – contact me.
