Keep Eastham Walk in Center open
Reconsider the relocation of 3 nursing staff from the Eastham Walkin Center to Arrowpark hospital resulting in the closure of the walk in centre in Wirral South
Why is this important?
Wirral has four walk in centers at present, three are in Wallasey and Birkenhead (The North of the Wirral peninsula) and only one in Wirral South where there is an ageing population.
It takes two bus rides and a five hour round trip to attend Arrowpark (nearest) from Eastham. The closure will result in more calls for ambulances and a greater strain on Arrowpark A&E triage services, and the risk of families and the elderly not being able to attend.
This could lead to further complications and emergency cases.
Once again the residents of Wirral South take the hit and are disregarded to bolster Birkenhead and the northen end of the Wirral.
Please sign this petition, say NO to this closure and show your support in keeping our only facility in Wirral South open.
