MP says GP figures are making it harder for people to get an appointment

First published in News

WARRINGTON North MP Helen Jones has challenged Prime Minister David Cameron’s assertion there are more GPs now and claims numbers in Warrington have fallen.

Mrs Jones said figures she had obtained found the number of full-time equivalent GPs has fallen under the Tory/LibDem government from 129 in 2009 to 122 in 2012.

She added: “A loss of five full-time equivalent GPs in a growing town like Warrington is making it much harder for many people to get an appointment.

“The fault is not with the hard-working GPs but David Cameron’s failure to live up to his promises.

“This is just another example of the damage this government is causing to the NHS. “

Whose Government allowed GPs to dictate the terms of their new contracts?

Ah, yes, that would have been Ms Jones' Labour Government...

Another ignore the facts, shout the blame statement from Ms Jones.
