Save Our Surgeries (SOS) campaigners promise new wave of action to defend practices threatened by MPIG cuts. A new meeting is planned for Wednesday 26 November at 7.30pm, taking place at Lauriston Primary School, 55 Rutland Road, E9 7JS Hackney. Speakers will include Meg Hillier MP (Lab, Hackney South & Shoreditch), Dr Louise Irvine from the Save Lewisham Hospital campaign, retired Hackney GP Dr Mike Fitzpatrick, Tower Hamlets GP Dr Sally Hull and Virginia Patania from the Jubilee Street Practice, which ignited the campaign when it announced it would be forced to close if MPIG cuts went ahead.  SOS is calling for all changes to GP funding to be put on hold, pending the review of GP funding that is due to start in 2015. The campaigners say any new funding formula must take factors like deprivation into account, and that all practices should receive fair funding to meet the needs of their patients, whichever contract they are working to.
