The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

An MP has called for an ur­gent in­quiry over con­cerns at a Peter­bor­ough health surgery.

North West Cam­bridgeshireMPShaileshVara­made the call for the probe into Bo­tolph Bridge Com­mu­nity Health Cen­tre in a let­ter to Si­mon Stevens, the chief ex­ec­u­tive of NHS Eng­land.

Last week the Peter­bor­ough Tele­graph re­vealed a re­port from the Care Qual­ity Com­mis­sion (CQC) said pa­tients were be­ing put at risk at the cen­tre in the Sugar Way es­tate in Wood­ston, Peter­bor­ough, and in­spec­tors rated the cen­tre as ‘in­ad­e­quate.’

Con­cerns were a l s o raised over a pilot care model be­ing tried at the cen­tre.

In his let­ter, MrVara­said: “I would be grate­ful if you could look into my con­cerns as a mat­ter of ur­gency.

“In par­tic­u­lar, it would ap­pear that an im­me­di­ate in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the is­sues cov­ered by the CQC should be es­tab­lished, and I would like­to­knowwhat­ac­tionNHS Eng­land is tak­ing to re­solve this sit­u­a­tion.”
