GPs now called to arms

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

to ex­ist­ing GPs who al­ready face ex­tra work if the seven-day week rolls out shortly.

“Dr Ashraf is the only mem­ber of the CCG to ac­cept that pri­mary care was sim­ply not ca­pa­ble of cop­ing.

“Let’s Save HRI has been made aware that a num­ber of GPs feel very strongly about these pro­pos­als and do not sup­port them.

“We would there­fore like to of­fer sup­port to lo­cal GPs in voic­ing their con­cerns pub­licly.

“Theirs is a voice that can­not be ig­nored by the CCGs, who are seem­ingly so emo­tion­ally wed­ded to these plans that they are ig­nor­ing med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als, upon whom these plan rely.

“We would like to ar­range a rally in St Ge­orge’s Square for GPs to show the CCGs that they do not sup­port their plans.

“If this is some­thing you would be will­ing to at­tend, please let us know.

“If we get enough in­ter­est, we will or­gan­ise the rally and all you would have to do is turn up.

“We be­lieve there is im­mense pub­lic sup­port for such a rally and so if GPs would be will­ing to speak out, they would not have to do so alone.

“Al­ter­na­tively, if you would like to ar­range an in­for­mal chat to dis­cuss how you can help the cam­paign, this is some­thing we would be more than happy to do and we would be will­ing to travel to you to fa­cil­i­tate this.”
