Save Houghton Urgent Care Services

Urgent care in Houghton could be AXED and replaced with an “extended access service” under new plans.
Your local Labour councillors will always fight for high quality and well-funded accessible local health services that will benefit everyone in our local communities.
Our residents have told us how important it is to them to receive their urgent care services near to home and for this reason we will be fighting on your behalf to secure the future of the urgent care facility at Houghton Primary Care Centre while the CCG “consult” regarding the future.
Don’t be under any illusion, the service is under threat and the CCG want to relocate the urgent care service to Pallion, with some additional GP hours being all they are offering in return.
This simply isn’t good enough for the residents of Houghton, Hetton, Copt Hill and Shiney Row. Your local Labour councillors will be making sure our objections are heard and that the residents we represent have a voice.
Our stand is to safeguard the future of Urgent Care Services at Houghton Primary Care Centre.
We demand that the Government, NHS England, Sunderland Clinical Commissioning Group and Sunderland Health & Well-being Board stop any plans to close these services for the residents of Houghton and surrounding areas and safeguard its Urgent Care provision.
Access to health care is a right of all in a modern society and we demand that it must be guaranteed.
