Polyclinics means more travel

10th June 2008

The Conservative Party has warned that patients will have to travel "treble" the distance to visit their doctor when polyclinics are built.

Information released as part of NHS London's polyclinic consultation has shown that the average distance to visit a GP will rise from 0.5 miles to 1.5 miles in London. Shadow Conservative health secretary Andrew Lansley said: "Labour's insistence on introducing polyclinics will make it much more difficult for society's most needy such as the elderly and young families to see their local doctor".
