David Ruffley in Meeting with Local GPs

Wednesday, 15 January, 2003

David Ruffley MP will be meeting Dr Watson and his partners at the Needham Market Country Practice on Friday, 17 January at 3.30 p.m.

David keeps in regular contact with members of the medical profession in his constituency as well as the Health Trusts who perform the administrative role in Suffolk.

Subjects for discussion will include GP patients lists and the role of GPs within the new health structure in the south Stowmarket area.

David said: 'GPs are the first port of call for most patients and, particularly in the south Stowmarket area, they are under increasing pressure as a result of the population growth. I am keen to hear for myself how GPs see their role developing and the challenges they face over the next few years.'
