In my constituency, many of the doctors’ surgeries provide excellent availability and quality of service, but there is a problem in one area. If I read the petition, the situation will be made clear.
The petition states:
The Humble Petition of residents of Higham Ferrers, Northamptonshire and the surrounding area,
That the Petitioners believe that the Higham Ferrers General Practise Surgery is facing significant strain and requires support to meet its waiting time and quality of care obligations to patients.
Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your Honourable House urges the Department of Health, NHS England and the Higham Ferrers Surgery to work together to ensure that waiting times are reduced and the quality of care improves at the Higham Ferrers Surgery.
And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray, &c.
House of Commons Hansard
