General Practitioners: Hemel Hempstead

Volume 479: debated on Monday 1 September 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment he has made of the effect on the number of GP practices in Hemel Hempstead of the polyclinic proposed to be sited there; and if he will make a statement. (208765)

West Hertfordshire Primary Care Trust (PCT) advises us it has no plans for a polyclinic in Hemel Hempstead. It does have proposals for a new general practitioner (GP)-led health centre to provide services in addition to existing GP surgeries and is currently considering the results of its recent consultation. The PCT advises that this will lead to an increase in capacity and additional choice for patients.
