Original motion text

That this House demands that the Secretary of State for Health should take immediate action to deal with the growing problem of violence against general practitioners; notes that this action may include consideration of amending regulations, but insists that any proposals to protect general practitioners from violence nevertheless protects a patient's right of access to medical services; and therefore calls on the Secretary of State for Health to convene an emergency meeting with patient organisations and doctors' representatives to resolve this issue at once.
