Local MP helps doctors and nurses make their views heard on NHS reorganisation

Bridget at Sunderland Royal HospitalLocal MP, Bridget Phillipson, has asked local GPs for their views on the Tory-led government's planned top-down reorganisation of the NHS.

Under the Government’s current proposals Primary Care Trusts - the organisation that currently plans local services and decides how the money is spent – will be scrapped. They will be replaced by groups of GP Consortia who have the power to buy in services for their patients.

It’s expected a summary of the survey results will be published by the end of August. NHS staff can take part in the survey by emailing Bridget.Phillipson.MP@parliament.uk.

Commenting on the release of her new survey, Bridget said:

“My survey is an opportunity for GPs and any other medical professionals in the NHS to make their views known about this Governments top down reforms.

“It’s clear from the letters I receive; local people are worried about the government’s proposed changes to the NHS. It’s about time the government took people’s concerns about these planned changes seriously and permanently ‘paused’ its plans
