Labour’s parliamentary candidate Claire Edwards asks “Have you had to wait a week to see your GP?” The NHS 2014 survey showed that over 1 in 10 people in Rugby and Coventry (over 50,000 people) had to wait a week or more to get an appointment with their GP, and 43% said they only saw their preferred GP some of the time or never.”

Rugby is the fastest growing borough in the West Midlands but access to GP services are clearly not keeping up with demand. In Brownsover we are crying out for a new medical centre but after 3 years are still waiting. When is this government going to stop blaming someone else and sort out the extra GPs we need in Rugby?
The next Labour Government has guaranteed to invest £100 million in GP surgeries – and to guarantee appointments within 48 hours or on the same day for those who need it.
If you have had problems getting an appointment with the GP you want to see, or within two days, please email us here and let us know.
