The visit was planned following a meeting with the local Clinical Commissioning Group, (CCG) earlier in the year.  Mark had the opportunity to discuss the issues currently being experienced by NHS doctors and GP practices in local primary care.  Mark was also given a tour of the modern purpose built practice building followed by a firsthand look at the work of a health professional in a clinical setting.

Mark said of his visit: “I have taken some very interesting observations and ideas away from my visit which has helped me to develop a better understanding of the challenges being faced by NHS staff and resources across the primary health care spectrum, today.  Going forward, I will continue my dialogue with the local CCG’s, primary care and local hospital to ensure that I continue to demand the best package of health care for all of my constituents, despite the Government’s cutbacks”
