Over the past month, Leigh MP James Grundy has been contacted by numerous concerned constituents who are troubled by the lack of face-to-face appointments being offered by their GPs.
Many local residents feel very strongly about the lack of availability of face-to-face appointments being offered and after seeing a rise in the number of complaints about this, Mr Grundy has secured a meeting with Wigan Clinical Commissioning Group to discuss these concerns in more detail.
Ahead of the meeting, Mr Grundy has today launched his GP Appointment Questionnaire, to enable local residents of the Leigh constituency to have their voice heard on this important issue. Mr Grundy will be feeding back the results of this questionnaire during his meeting with Wigan CCG.
MP for Leigh, James Grundy, said:
“I know that this is an issue that many local residents feel strongly about, with many raising their concerns on the lack of face-to-face appointments and the problems that this will cause for our already overstretched A&E departments.
“This is why I am running my GP Appointment Questionnaire, to find out more about these issues so I can report the findings to Wigan CCG.
“My questionnaire is now live and accessible on my website. For those who might struggle with using the internet, please either telephone my office or leave a voicemail and a member of my team can help talk you through this survey so you can have your say on the matter.”
