The local Lib Dems were shocked to hear that Manor Practice may be forced to close due to government cuts to NHS services.
To save money, local NHS bosses are forcing our local GP practice to pay more to stay open - and they can’t afford it. Without urgent support, the GPs who run the practice will have no choice but to close down the Roundshaw branch and move services further away.
Local Councillor Ed Joyce said:
“I know this surgery is a vital lifeline for residents on Roundshaw and that is why local Lib Dems are fighting to keep the practice open.Everyone deserves access to a local GP and I am appalled that Conservative cuts are forcing our hard working GPs to leave Roundshaw.”
Liberal Democrats on the council have raised their concerns at meetings and have met with the practice to discuss the damage that moving services away would do, but they need the support of residents to fight for the funding thet need to stay open.
