GP Surgeries Under Threat

front_200px.jpgDorset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are considering a strategy document that is proposing a drastic reduction in the number of what they call “sites delivering Primary Care” or what we call GP’s Surgeries. You can read the report here.

Page 31 concerns East Dorset and North Poole where it envisages a reduction in GP locations from 13 at present to between 5-10.

Page 32 concerns Poole Central where it envisages a reduction in GP locations from 15 at present to between 5-9.

Page 33 concerns Purbeck and envisages a reduction in GP locations from 6 at present to between 2-4.

These reductions are shockingly large and will effect thousands of local residents and yet the Dorset CCG are not proposing to consult the public about this report at all.

We believe that the public have the right to know about this proposal and should have the right to have a say before any definite decision is taken.

I/We call on the Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group to fully consult the public on their proposals to drastically reduce the number of GP surgeries contained in the report Primary Care and Commissioning Strategy and Plan 2016-2021.
