Motion text

That this House expresses its gratitude and thanks to the hard-working and dedicated staff that work in our health services, particularly during the trying period of the covid-19 outbreak; notes that there has been a significant increase in pressure on GP surgeries in the last five years, with rising workloads, a lack of funding to meet demand and a difficulty in recruiting and retaining staff, as highlighted by the Kings Fund; expresses the deep concern that in the past year a further 6 GP surgeries have closed in Yorkshire and the Humber, further to nearly 200 closures between 2010-2020; and calls on the Government to reverse these cuts, relieve the pressure, increase smart and strategic funding, put an end to outsourcing services and build an NHS fit for the 21st century.
