The group has appealed directly to MPs by placing an advert in ‘The House Magazine' which is distributed in Parliament. The advert urges MPs to speak to their local PCT about polyclinic plans in their constituency.
Juliet Dunmur and Natalie Teich of the BMA's PLG warn: ‘We, as patients, are extremely concerned that these plans will lead to a decline in quality of patient care.
‘We are concerned that older people, those less able, and those with long-term conditions will be most adversely affected.
‘There could be problems of travel and access to general practice. Proper consultation with patients, the public and local GPs has not taken place.'
