Join our campaign against cuts to GP budgets

Will you join our campaign to oppose cuts to GP services across the District?

I am totally opposed to the Government slashing £3.8 million from GP’s budgets in our area which could see small practices closing; 38 full time doctors or 95 full time nurses being lost; and patients waiting longer to be seen by a GP.

Goal: 58 signatures

Will you sign?

We feel totally disgusted with the Tory’s way of how the NHS is to be handled especially with Mid Yorskshire NHS Hospital Trust (Pinderfields General Hospital

(PGH) , Pontefract General Infirmary (PGI) and also Dewsbury General Hospital (DGH)) then onto the GP cutting of local GP surgeries in the Castleford Area’s of West Yorkshire!

My husband and I are very happy with the services that we get from the GP and Practice Staff at Henry Moore Clinic on Smawthorne Lane, Castleford, as well as the Ferry Fryston Clinic, in Airedale, Castleford. And especially Dr MJR Blackamore who goes that extra mile (as the saying goes) to try and help you with any underlying medical issues that you aren’t able to understand, etc….l

I belong to Stuart Road surgery in Pontefract, and in 30+ years I can honestly say I have never had a problem getting to see a Dr or a practice nurse. I have been particularly thankful to my Dr and to the NHS, this year due to open heart surgery. It is absolutely disgraceful what this Tory government is trying to do to the NHS, AND MUST BE STOPPED

I think that the conservatives plans to destroy one of the many things that makes us British is disgusting. We need to stand up and fight the terrible tories!

How can we have a 24 hour NHS with cuts like this?

This is an appalling and wanton act by the Government, for which they have no mandate. They are underestimating people’s rage at what they are doing.

I was born with lung disease, it has worsened over the years. I have now a number of other conditions that have developed due to the extent of my lung, including chronic pain. If it wasn’t for my G.P I believe I would either be dead, or a good deal worse!
