Stop the closure of Wilson Drop in Health Centre and G.P. Practice

This petition had 275 supporters

At a recent public meeting about the planned "future redevelopment" of the Wilson Hospital site on Cranmer Road in Mitcham we were told  by a representative of the NHS CCG that the Wilson Drop -in Facility and GP surgery will close at the end of March. (Although all registered patients at the surgery have been sent letters to suggest alternative surgeries previously) There is nearly 6000 patients that are registered at the practice, and countless drop in patients which attend this facility, taking a tremendous strain off the A&E at nearby St. Helier.

Mitcham surgeries are already full to capacity, there are 4 surgeries that  the NHS say can take an extra 1500 each!!(and these surgeries cannot even cope with what they have) and the inadequate amount of money promised to support local GP surgeries is not going to make a slight dent

 Mitcham has one of the largest communities of 55+ residents, many of whom cannot make the 2 bus journey required  to access another GP

 The plan is to redevelop the whole site, this plan at the best will take 5 years, and probably a whole lot longer. Please sign and show your support and share to anyone you know in or around the Mitcham area,
