Save East London's Surgeries!

The government is changing the way GPs surgeries are funded, and it’s going to be a disaster for East London. When the new funding comes into place, many of our local GP surgeries will close. We’ll have fewer choices about the GP we see, we’ll need to travel longer to get there, and we’ll potentially have to wait longer for an appointment.

All this means that when you’re ill, it will be harder for you to get the care you need.

In East London, a group of locals who have come together to raise awareness about what’s going on, and pressure the government to change its mind. And already, we’ve had some success. In the face of a public outcry, the government has agreed to explore some emergency funding to keep our surgeries open for another year. That’s a step in the right direction, but it’s not good enough. We want the government to reverse the way they fund GP surgeries, so that we can save our GPs surgeries for good.
