PE01698: Medical care in rural areas


Petitioner: Karen Murphy, Jane Rentoul, David Wilkie, Louisa Rogers and Jennifer Jane Lee


Closing Date for Online Petition: 18 July 2018

Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to:

  1. Ensure strong rural and remote G.P. representation on the remote and rural short life working group, recently established as part of the new GP contract for Scotland.  
  2. Adjust the Workload Allocation Formula (WAF) urgently in light of the new contract proposals to guarantee that both primary and ancillary services are, at least, as good as they are now in ALL areas so patients do not experience a rural and remote post code lottery in relation to the provision of health care.
  3. Address remote practice and patient concerns raised in relation to the new G.P. contract.
