Don't lose your GP We [...].

Don't lose your GP WE hear (July 15) of the health centre in Wakefield under threat, in addition to a surgery in Slaithwaite, increasing pressure on alreadystretched services.

Not only are GPs working 12 to 14-hour days seeing to needy patients and responding to the demands of NHS England, now Capita, for its back-office functions role, is asking them to upload details of healthy patients on their lists who have not visited the practice for five years.

This includes healthy children who have passed the age of routine vaccination visits, between the age of 8 to 15 and students, young people and elderly.

To save your GP extra work, if you have not visited the surgery for five years, please consider contacting the surgery to confirm your continued existence.
