Bury’s NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is meeting tomorrow (Wednesday 18 January 2017) to determine the fate of the two Walk-In Centres in Bury (Bury and Prestwich).
The report which will be considered by the Board Members, recommends ‘Option 1’, which is to go ahead with the closures. The result of the ‘public engagement’ undertaken by the CCG shows that 85% of respondents either disagreed or strongly disagreed with the proposals. The reports explains that the majority of concerns and objections were from the Prestwich area.
Only one petition was received by the CCG objecting to the closures, which had been organised by the local Lib Dems in Prestwich.
We’ll let you know what happens, but it doesn’t look good….
