GPs now called to arms
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.”
