Dr Michelle Drage responds to the appointment of Matthew Hancock as Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.

“Congratulations and welcome to new Health Secretary Matthew Hancock.

“I’d love the opportunity to show him the true face of London’s General Practice. Particularly how our resilient and dedicated practice teams act as the front door for the Capital’s healthcare, managing the challenges that come with caring for over nine million people across our 32 boroughs , providing both episodic and relationship continuity for  our widely diverse and highly mobile population with increasingly complex health needs.

“Technology is a massive aid to GPs and their teams, but at the core of general practice is the consultation, and continuity of care. I hope that Mr Hancock is open to supporting what works and together we can help practices benefit from what is new.”
