GP Waiting Times Unacceptable In Certain Parts Of Notts

That's the view of one local councillor who has expressed his concern in front of Notts County Council's Health Committee. 

Increasing waiting times to see a GP in our area have been raised by Councillor John Wilmott.

Councillor Wilmott, an Ashfield Independent councillor for Hucknall North claimed that it was “…currently impossible to get a doctor’s appointment in Hucknall.”

He was speaking to health bosses from the Clinical Commissioning Group, a group of GPs and health professionals responsible for local health services.

Councillor Wilmott told the meeting, “Health inequalities exist in this County and we want to know what your plan is deal with this?"

Hucknall’s councillors have also requested an urgent meeting with the Chief Commissioning Officer for the CCG Lucy Dadge to discuss how they are progressing plans for a new ‘Cavell – Super Health Centre’ in Hucknall.

Ashfield District Council has already raised £1,000,000 towards the project

At the meeting, it was revealed that 26,906 residents in Nottinghamshire had to wait more than 28 days for a GP appointment. 

It also revealed that nearly 4 out of every 10 resident who ‘saw’ a GP did so via phone or online.
