We are calling for the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) for Eastbourne, Hailsham and Seaford to to scrap plans to consider the closure of the GP walk-in centre at Eastbourne Station.
While we welcome the CCG's recent decision to pause their plans to consider the closure in light of COVID-19, we're calling on the process to be shelved altogether.
Even before COVID-19, the walk-in centre was an essential part of our local NHS provision. It provides care not only to residents in and around the town centre, but also those unable to register with a GP and tourists who visit from across the UK and beyond.
Closing this facility is short-sighted at best and only going to increase the huge strain on our NHS.
Please do join us in signing this petition to save our walk in centre.
We will include your name and address when submitting the petition to the Eastbourne, Hailsham and Seaford CCG.
