Speaking at a meeting of the All Party Parliamentary Group for primary care and public health at the House of Commons in London on Wednesday afternoon, the MP for Exeter in Devon said: ‘I’ve used my walk-in centre a lot more than my GP, partly because of convenience.
‘I do work long hours and I can’t afford time off being ill sat in a surgery for several hours. My walk-in centre is great and has sorted me out.’
Mr Bradshaw was one of three speakers, including GPC chairman Dr Laurence Buckman, in a debate about GP access and extended hours. Read the full story in next week’s GP.
