On Friday, I had a valuable catch-up meeting with Dr Jill Evans at Esher Green Surgery.
Local GPs and their teams have done an amazing job supporting our communities during the pandemic, so this was a good opportunity to thank Dr Evans for her efforts – as I did when I met with the Oxshott Medical Practice and Emberbrook Community Health Centre before Christmas.
I know that the availability of GP appointments is a key issue locally, so we also discussed the extra investment that the government is putting in to increase availability over the winter. This is part of ensuring that the key target in this area – 50 million more GP appointments per year by 2024/25 – is met.
Thank you to Dr Evans for taking the time to discuss these important issues.
