Big Turnout for Crunch Health Meeting

October 7, 2004 12:00 AM

50 people turned out on Tuesday evening for the meeting at the Civic Offices organised by MPs Tom Brake and Paul Burstow to discuss 'Better Healthcare Closer to Home' proposals. Ian Ayres from the Primary Care Trust and GP Dr Martyn Wake were on hand to respond to residents' questions.

Commenting after the meeting, Tom Brake said, "During the meeting, for every question that was answered, another two were unearthed! A lot more flesh has got to be put on the bones of this particular proposal. Not only has the location of the critical care centre got to be identified, but so have the locations for the local care hospitals. Stating that a site in Wallington Town Centre will be used for the local care centre, when currently no such site is readily identifiable, creates uncertainty."

Tom Brake is pressing for more work to be done on the St Helier Estate to inform local residents about the plans, as it appears that information leaflets have not reached many households.

A further public meeting which will be chaired by Tom Brake MP is to be held about the proposals at Hill House in Bishopsford Road, Morden (on the corner of Bishopsford Road and Middleton Road) on the 11th November 2004 at 7.30pm.

Tom Brake said, "I hope St Helier residents will turn out in large numbers for this meeting as whatever decision is taken about hospitals locally, it will have a big impact on St Helier residents. This is their chance to make their voices heard."

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
