Island GPs to hold first joint summit

Island doctors are to meet under one roof for the first time to discuss how they can improve and enhance services offered at their surgeries and reduce hospital waiting lists.

The meeting next Wednesday (5 December) is a first for doctors and has been organised by the GP sub committee of the Isle of Man Medical Society.

Surgeries will remain open, appointments can be made and medical advice will be available from other health staff, although there may be some disruption to GP home visits.

Chairman of the GP sub committee Dr Alex Allinson says the meeting aims to be much more than a discussion about budgetary constraints:
