Rossington should benefit from £57.5million NHS investment in Doncaster’s primary care says Don Valley MP Caroline Flint.
“This is the first real investment in primary care in a decade,” says Caroline “I hope Rossington is one of the gainers from this investment. Rossington is a good example of a village that needs new GP premises. Rossington is a large outlying community that is still growing.”

Rossington is the largest village in Europe and has a new 1200 home development near the iPort.
The Don Valley MP said: “This investment has been a long time coming. The NHS’ front door is our GP practices and health clinics. It is vital we have modern GP practices in every corner of the borough. Primary care has not had substantial new investment since the Labour government built health new centres across Doncaster, and an NHS walk-in centre in town.”
“This £57.5million can go a long way to modernising some of our local surgeries – and it is step on the journey to rebuilding an NHS that has been struggling for years under successive Conservative governments.”
The Don Valley MP warned against Boris Johnson recycling old money. “Of course, we should not turn our nose up at new investment, but I want to see the details and I want to see every penny is well spent to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Doncaster’s outlying communities.”
The MP is writing to the Doncaster CCG to make the case for new GP premises in Rossington.
