Save our surgery - campaign to keep Netherton GP Surgery open

This petition had 223 supporters


Keep our surgery open in Netherton! Local Lib Dems are deeply concerned by the proposed closure of Netherton Surgery. Finbarr Cronin is worried for the health and well-being of the elderly and young children who rely on being able to access a doctor in the village.

I/We the undersigned call on NHS Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to:

1. Do more to support Orchard Croft Practice to employ permanent and/or locum staff in order to maintain weekly GP and Practice Nurse clinics in the village.

2. Ensure that any proposed closure will not be considered by Wakefield CCG without a replacement guarantee of more home visits if a Netherton patient is unable to travel to see a clinician in Horbury.  

3. A transport solution is found to ensure those who are unable to and/or who will struggle, can have access to Orchard Croft Medical Centre.

The Liberal Democrats and their elected representatives may use the information you’ve given to contact you. By providing your data to us, you are consenting to us making contact with you in the future by email.
