GPs to get computer option for cognitive therapies
Dr John Havard's patients are taking legal action to try to save plans for a long-awaited 'one-stop' health centre which will house his practice.
Suffolk Coastal PCT has refused to fund the Saxmundham Health Centre, which would provide GP and dentist surgeries, an ambulance station, a creche and birthing unit.
Patients are now bringing a judicial review, arguing the PCT did not apply the same criteria to six schemes that were bidding for money.
Dr Havard, who had received backing for the 'one-stop' health centre scheme from health minister John Hutton, said the situation was a 'crying shame'.
