MP welcomes new primary careÂ serviceÂ
MP ofÂ Portsmouth South, Stephen Morgan, has visited staff at the new 24/7 primary care service in the city.
TheÂ service is set toÂ enhance patient experience and improve access to GP services.
It opened earlier this year andÂ operates alongsideÂ the existing acute visiting service and extended access service as well asÂ addingÂ out of hours provision overnight.
The linking of these services leads to a more streamlined and unified model for people needing urgent out-of-hospital care.
Mr Morgan said: '˜This is an incredibly busy service and this new integration should go some way in reducing pressure on our A&E as well as improving access to GPs.'
