I am pleased that the Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt, has now referred this matter to the Independent Reconfiguration Panel for review.
However, as you will read, I am very concerned that OCCG have not been required to stop closure proceedings. I am also concerned that the decision made by the IRP will be too late for the practice, and merely be academic.
I sent this letter in response to the Secretary of State's letter to the Oxfordshire HOSC, responding as soon as it landed on my desk.
