Bob seeks greater role for GPs in NHS winter readiness
Bob Doris MSP
Wednesday, 10 December 2014

Bob DorisBob Doris, MSP for Glasgow and deputy convener of the Scottish Parliament’s Health and Sport Committee yesterday (Tuesday) called on an expanded role for GPs in future years to inform patients of key information ahead of the Christmas period.

Bob said that, while every individual has a responsibility to be suitably prepared for winter and make careful healthcare decisions when the NHS is under particular strain, people needed suitably detailed information in order to do so. He suggested that, in future, GPs should contact all patients in the run-up to winter with crucial details such as GP and pharmacy opening hours, the nearest minor injuries units, when to use NHS 24 or doctors’ out-of-hours services, and to ensure they had adequate prescription medication over the Christmas period.
