Developers Contributions to go towards Primary Healthcare

My idea is that because many, many more houses are being built in the area where I live, the primary healthcare ie GP surgeries are under considerable strain.  This applies throughout Scotland, but obviously I'm more aware of it in my area.  Some GP surgeries have closed their lists and are unable to take new patients.  Also fewer medics are training to be GPs so there is a shortfall in GPs.   My point is that legislation should be changed so that developers contributions become mandatory for GP primary healthcare as well as building schools and other infrastructureas it currently goes towards. 

Why the contribution is important

It is important that people have access to primary care medicine.

    What an excellent idea. After all, if developers have to make token payments towards improvements to local transport, schooling etc, why not healthcare as well?
