Bassetlaw MP John Mann is to call an urgent meeting with local NHS leaders after a report found a Worksop GP surgery was ranked as a ‘high concern.’

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) ranked 7,276 practices out of 7,661 in England using 38 different indicators to calculate the level of risk of poor care.

Practices were categorised into six bands, with Band One being ‘highest concern’ and Band Six being ‘low risk.’

The report categorised Newgate Medical Group, on Newgate Street, Worksop, in the ‘highest concern’ band.

Mr Mann said: “My experience with the Newgate Practice has been positive in relation to treatment although I know that there have been some complaints about delays in getting appointments.”

“I would tend to trust the judgement of local residents, however it is important that this independent report and its concerns are fully addressed.”

“There is no need for anyone to panic, nor do I advise that there is a need for anyone to consider changing their GP purely because of this report.”

“I have convened an urgent meeting with local NHS leaders to find out what they intend to do and also to clarify why these issue have not been raised with me in previous meetings.”
