Cheltenham’s Conservative MP previously announced plans to bring back 24/7 doctor-led A&E at Cheltenham General and improve GP services. As I speak to residents across Cheltenham, facing ever-longer waits for appointments and basic services, they're asking me what went wrong.
Demand for appointments is increasing because of failures elsewhere in the healthcare system. Local surgeries have warned that GPs are working long hours without breaks.
That's why I'm launching this campaign: local people deserve better than these Tory failures on the health service.
I'm in discussions with our local health service and have called on local councils to put this project on their infrastructure funding list.
Will you sign my petition to help show local health bosses that Cheltenham needs a new GP surgery?
A new GP surgery is needed in Cheltenham to help people get quicker appointments to see their doctor. Back my campaign to secure the funding we need for the health service we deserve.
