Joan Ryan MP calls on Government to guarantee that Enfield will have 84 more GPs by 2020

Joan Ryan MP has called on the Government to guarantee that Enfield will have 84 more GPs by 2020, as recommended by the Royal College of General Practitioners.

Today I called on the Government to guarantee that Enfield will have 84 more GPs by 2020, as recommended by the Royal College of General Practitioners.

People in Enfield who need to see a GP are facing an acute appointments crisis. Over the last 6 years, 12 doctors’ surgeries in Enfield have closed and only 1 new practice has opened.

We've got fewer GPs per head than almost anywhere in the capital and that is despite being the 4th largest borough in the whole of London. Enfield desperately needs more doctors.

Sign and share my petition and together we will show the Government the strength of our community’s desire to protect Enfield's vital primary care services.
