I had a constructive meeting with GPs at Brook Lane Surgery in Fareham where we discussed the challenges facing the practice and local health care in the area.
At the meeting, GPs talked of possible strains on services that may arise from new developments in the area.
I would like to thank Paul Lardner, Chairman and for Mel Watson, Practice Manager and the resident GPs for their time to discuss challenges facing local healthcare.
It is important that new housing is supported by sufficient healthcare facilities and I will be raising this with Fareham and Gosport CCG.
GPs also raised the need for a new bus stop at Fareham Community Hospital, adjacent to Brook Lane Surgery, which could also be use by patients of the surgery. I am currently running a campaign to reinstall a bus stop at FCH and I am urging residents to sign my petition (link).
