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.
