The DDA is inviting practices in England to lobby MPs about the unforeseen effects of well-intentioned health policy in rural areas.

The letter highlights the consequences of the following proposals:

  • Suggested changes to the GP partnership model
  • Primary Care Networks
  • Medicine reclassifications
  • Emergency access to medicines
  • Mass vaccination centres
  • GP+
  • Static NHS funding

The letter explains that NHS England is being permitted to discriminate against the nine million patients – a population which is larger than that of Greater London – who live in remote, rural, coastal and island communities.

It invites MPs to take the ‘rural challenge.’

MPs’ contact details are available online
