MP Robert Halfon discusses access to Harlow surgeries with GP minister

Health / Tue 22nd Mar 2022 pm31 04:07pm

HARLOW MP Robert Halfon paid a visit to the Ross Practice in Bush Fair recently.

This was one in a series of visits to surgeries across the town. Last month he visited Nuffield House in The Stow.

It is clear that Mr Halfon is getting a lot of post from concerned residents regarding access to their GPs.

He then had a meeting with GP minister Maria Caulfield MP who said she would speak to the health bosses (the West Essex Clinical Commissioning Group).

Are the surgeries dragging their heels in getting patients back into the surgeries? We discussed this with Mr Halfon.

So why do you have to stand in the street to discuss you reason for visiting the surgery. This is the Old Harlow practice, you have to press the buzzer then wait for the receptionist to come to the front door and in front of everyone else discuss your reason, which may be confidential. Surely you should be able to go into the surgery and speak with the staff. I have had to talk to the receptionist through the intercom with everyone listening in the cold and rain.

I have a lung condition and asthma when I call for a appointment I can only have a phone appointment and I said to the receptionist need the doctor to check my chest she said if I'm that bad phone for a ambulance. Which I won't do. Even trying to get a asthma check is impossible.

An appointment with a GP is impossible to make. I have been "looking after myself" since the beginning of the pandemic and the mirror shows me I look 10 years older! I really need physiotherapy but suspect this is impossible too.

After waiting an hour on phone to get a GP appointment I have been told the earliest available is 28 December between 9 and 12. I asked if I could speak to another GP but nothing available. I have been waiting for an ECG for about 3 weeks. Still can’t get one as machine is broken. This is a disgrace and not what you expect from one of the richest countries in the world. There is no excuse. The health of the nation is suffering and something must be done to sort this out.
