Frontline Health Services (Haverhill)

The Petition of residents of Haverhill,

13 Dec 2007 : Column 6P

Declares that Haverhill doctors are united against plans to cut funding for the towns frontline health services by over £300,000.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Department of Health to instruct Suffolk Primary Care Trust to reconsider the reduction in funding to Haverhill GP practices.

And the Petitioners remain, etc. —[Presented by Mr. Richard Spring , Official Report, 22 November 2007; Vol. 467, c. 1423 .] [P000057]

Observations from the Secretary of State for Health:

The issues raised in the petition are local matters for Suffolk Primary Care Trust (PCT) and my Department will bring these to the attention of the Strategic Health Authority, NHS East of England.
