A number of issues the people of Congleton have faced with the covid-19 testing system have been raised in Parliament by Fiona.
The first question raised with the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care was to ask him what steps he is taking to increase the availability of covid-19 tests for people in the Congleton constituency.
Secondly, she asked what steps he is taking to reduce the distance people in Congleton constituency must travel to a covid-19 testing centre.
Finally, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care was asked what steps he is taking to ensure the closure of a covid-19 testing centre is communicated to people travelling to attend a pre-booked test at that centre in (a) England and (b) Congleton.
Fiona submitted the questions via Written Parliamentary Questions, a parliamentary function that allows MPs or Members of the House of Lords to put questions to government ministers in writing and receive a written answer quickly.
“I look forward to hearing the answer to these important questions.
A number of my constituents have struggled to access covid-19 tests locally and it is vital that this is rectified as soon as possible.”
The Department for Health and Social Care have indicated that these questions will be answered as soon as possible.
