Roisin Mullins-Jacobs started this petition to Bob Seely MP (Member of Parliament for the Isle of Wight) and

We the undersigned request that the Hampshire and Isle of Wight CCG agree to the provision of NHS GP surgeries in Brading, and Lake, Isle of Wight. Following the planned closure of the Beechgrove Surgeries, approximately 4,500 NHS patients will be left without a local GP, and are set to be sent to other overcrowded practices. This will cause undue hardship on the patients of the Beechgrove Surgeries, and will also affect other surgeries on the Isle of Wight. We request that the CCG recruits new GPs to take on the work of the Beechgrove Surgeries. We also request that the CCG considers using the existing surgery premises, as well as other suitable buildings in Brading and Lake. Consideration must be given to the logistics of asking a patient to travel to another surgery.  For those who are unwell, elderly,  terminally ill, have  long term conditions, are pregnant, have babies and children, and/or are on a low income, travelling to a practice in a different town, can be highly inconvenient, costly and difficult. Concerns voiced locally surrounding being sent to an alternative surgery, include, patient overcrowding, lack of parking, lack of public transport links, the cost of travel and duration of journeys, as well as loss of relationship with a local GP, and a lack of appointment availability.  We request that the CCG consider the right citizens hold, to access NHS medical care, at their local GP surgery, without causing undue hardship. Isle of Wight people have a right to local medical care at a local GP surgery.
