Andrew Mitchell MP discusses health reforms with local GPs

14th October 2013

Andrew Mitchell MP has visited the MMP Mere Green Branch Practice as part of the British Medical Association’s MP-GP visit scheme to discover first-hand how general practice is working in Sutton Coldfield.

Mr Mitchell met with staff from the centre including Dr Ghauri who gave feedback on how recent health reforms were working and discussed key public health issues affecting his patients in Sutton Coldfield.

Andrew Mitchell MP said, “The Coalition Government has protected the Health budget and at the same time introduced reforms to put Doctors in the driving seat.

“I am always keen to hear about how the Government’s reforms are working in practise and I will feedback to the Health Secretary that the key message from this surgery was that primary and secondary care could be better integrated.”
