Lincoln’s Member of Parliament, Karl McCartney MP, has welcomed the news that primary care services at Burton Road Surgery in his constituency will continue to be run by the current provider until at least June 2015.

Karl McCartney MP said: “I am pleased to hear that NHS England have listened to patients and local residents and have taken the decision to launch a consultation on the future of the Surgery and also ensure that care services will continue to be run by the current provider until at least June 2015.

“It is very important that Burton Road Surgery’s patients’ views are considered before any final decision is taken in respect of the potential closure of their local GP Surgery.

“It has been great to work with fellow patients and local residents and users of the Surgery to ensure it remains open and as ever I will seek to ensure my constituents receive the best healthcare provision possible.”
