Primary Care Support England – Petition

GP Surgery Manager supports the Petition set up on to bring Parliaments attention to the failure of Capita to provide an acceptable system for transferring medical records when patients change doctor and failing to set up salaries for GP Registrars.

Practice Managers Comment -” It really is shocking!! They’ve lost patient records – patients are complaining to NHSE. Complete and utter shambles. The van driver who brings and takes the records has told me that their vans aren’t big enough, so they can’t fit everything in. The depot has a room completely full of records, which don’t get touched due to insufficient staff and small vans”. 21/9/16

Ask your colleagues, doctors, nurses and practice staff to add their names too – 100,000 names needed for a debate in Parliament, but 10,000 names will provoke a Government response.
