Pulse writes to over 200 MPs regarding practices at risk of closure

Pulse has written to more than 200 MPs in the regions of the UK most affected by potential practice closures calling on them to support the Stop Practice Closures Campaign.

The letter aims to inform MPs about what potential closures in their region will mean for their constituents – GPs and patients alike.

Pulse is aiming to attract support from MPs of all parties across the UK, to raise the issue of practice closures in Parliament.

If you are affected by practice closures in your area, you can adapt our letter to send to your own MP.
