Policy Statement: Health & Social Care

You said:

We need more and better health services.

Many of our doctors’ surgeries and dentists are oversubscribed. We should all be able to see our GPs and dentists when we need to and not have to wait weeks for an appointment. When our children or family members require social care, we should have good quality services able to provide the care we need.

We will promote the provision of specialist facilities to encourage GPs, dentists and medical auxiliaries to set up new practices, or to improve the current ones. We will work with the NHS, local councils and community groups to develop a strategy for a healthy Uttlesford – promoting healthy and active lifestyles but ensuring quick and easy access to healthcare when needed. We will oppose cuts to social care and make sure those adults and children needing support or care receive an excellent level of care.
