Rugby MP Mark Pawsey received his Covid-19 vaccination at Locke House, which was managed by Rugby Health Limited. They are now seeking residents’ feedback to expand health appointments from October 2022
Local MP Mark Pawsey is encouraging people in Rugby to respond to Rugby Health Limited’s survey on enhanced access care.
The survey, which runs online until 31 July 2022, will ask people about their preferences for additional clinics due to begin in October 2022. The appointments will be focused on evenings and weekends and enable additional consultation time through their existing GPs. The survey also asks residents to consider challenges they may have in accessing the clinics.
Rugby Health Limited, who represent the 12 GP practices in Rugby, have said that the clinics will focus on long-term condition management, chronic disease control, lifestyle support and prevention. The organisation was also responsible for the delivery of the Covid-19 vaccination programme in Rugby, which was centred around Locke House in the town centre.
Speaking about the survey, Mark commented:
“I know from speaking to local residents that access to GPs is a priority for families here in Rugby and so the announcement of additional out-of-hours clinics, which will offer 15.5 additional hours of Primary Care from October is extremely welcome. The survey will enable Rugby Health Limited to better shape their services and I would encourage as many local residents as possible to complete it.”
