It comes ahead of a series of crunch votes on the King's Speech in Parliament on Wednesday 15 November.
The Liberal Democrat amendment would give a patient a legal right to see their GP within a week, and 24-hours if in urgent need. It also calls on the government to publish a dental recovery plan as promised seven months after a shocking rise in the number of ‘dental deserts’ leaving people struggling to see an NHS dentist when they need to.
Other measures in the amendment include ensuring the Conservative manifesto pledge of building 40 new hospitals is met, with many currently facing delays and not receiving adequate funding.
High Peak Liberal Democrats have said that if he does not back the amendment it would show a “callous disregard for those stuck on NHS waiting lists”.
Liberal Democrat spokesperson for High Peak, David Lomax said:
“This Conservative government has brought our local health services to their knees. Everyday, people are struggling to get a GP appointment or cannot find a dentist taking NHS patients.
“Real action on the NHS was glaringly missing from the King’s Speech. Robert Largan needs to back the Liberal Democrat amendment to it and ensure that local health services are put front and centre of the government’s agenda.
“Anything less would show a callous disregard for those in High Peak stuck on NHS waiting lists, unable to get the treatment that they deserve.”
