Chamber and committees

Motion ref. S6M-01217

Return to Normal GP Services

Submitted by: Annie Wells, Glasgow, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party.
Date lodged: Monday, September 13, 2021

Supported by: Meghan Gallacher
Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Wednesday, September 15, 2021

Motions as amended

That the Parliament recognises that patients have a right to treatment by GPs, and other appropriate primary care health professionals, such as dentists, nurses, optometrists and pharmacists; appreciates that GPs and primary care staff were asked to change the way that they worked in response to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic; thanks GPs and primary care staff for keeping practices open and their hard work during the pandemic; recognises that, for many patients, the choice of using ehealth and telehealth solutions to initially contact their GP has been convenient, but that it is not a solution that is appropriate for all; believes that face-to-face consultations will continue to be necessary and that they should be taken forward in line with clinical guidance and in a manner that is as safe as possible as quickly as possible, and welcomes the Scottish Government commitment to work with the Royal College of General Practitioners, British Medical Association, Royal College of Nursing and other stakeholders to deliver this.
