Motion text

That this House recognises that the funding formula for general practice surgeries disadvantages small rural practices, such as those in Coniston and Hawkshead, where Coniston surgery faces a drop in funding of £25,000 over seven years; notes that this loss in funding may result in these surgeries being forced to close; further notes that these practices are vital to the communities they serve, particularly in large rural areas; and therefore calls on the Government and NHS England to create a strategic small surgeries fund which would make up the shortfall that small rural surgeries face, enabling them to continue to provide vital health services to the rural communities, residents and visitors they serve.
