MP Mark Tami urges residents to contact him if they are experiencing problems with a Connah’s Quay GP Surgery
Deeside’s MP is urging residents to contact him if they are experiencing problems with a Connah’s Quay GP Surgery.
Mark Tami has said he is “intensely concerned” following reports St Mark’s Dee View Surgery closed on Monday due to having no doctors.
Several people have been in touch with Deeside.com about the surgery of the past few days about the service.
One local resident – who preferred not to be named – told us the situation at the surgery was getting “beyond a joke now.”
He has been waiting over two weeks for a repeat prescription to be signed for his child’s chronic eczema “but there are no doctors available to sign it.”
Alyn and Deeside MP Mark Tami said he is aware of the situation at St Mark’s Dee View Surgery and “I am intensely concerned about this.”
“Whilst we all recognise the burden on GP surgeries as we move out of the pandemic, some of the constituents of the experience have reported to me are below what is acceptable.”
“Whilst I cannot comment on the specific details of individual cases, an overarching theme is of delays leading to serious, avoidable harm that will affect some people for the rest of their lives.”
“I have written to the health board about this issue calling on them to take immediate steps to ensure there is enough capacity for everyone who needs to be seen, to be seen, promptly.”
“Whilst I await a response from them on this issue, I would encourage everyone who has concerns about this issue to let me know, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or, if you cannot access email, please call 01244 836350.”
“The more people who come forward, the stronger our case is for getting this issue fixed.”
