Anyone who has visited the A&E department at Northwick Park Hospital will know how busy it is and be aware of the 4-hour wait.
Walk-in and Urgent Care Centres, a vital part of our healthcare service, are an alternative to, and take the pressure off our A&E departments. Because of funding cuts, Northwest London Clinical Commissioning aims to reduce the number of patients at the Alexandra Avenue Clinic from 40,000 to 20,000 by removing it's walk-in availability from November 1st 2018. Harrow walk-in centre's will only be available at the Pinn Medical Centre and Belmont Health centre.
Local parents, elderly and vulnerable patients, will be severely affected by this change. If the Alex Clinic has lost its walk-in availability, how long until the Pinn and Belmont Health Centre's suffer the same fate?
Please join #Fixit in our attempt to maintain the availability of the Alexandra Clinic NHS Walk-in service, an invaluable asset to our community. Let’s pull together and make sure that our Harrow services are not pulled away. Together, our voices can be heard.
