Keep Eastham Walk in Center open

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.

Thankyou


Reasons for signing

  • Eastham Walkin Centre is a valuable and necessary health resource in Eastham and should be retained as residents would need to travel much further to access this service. It has an aging population who may have difficulties accessing other services by public transport.
  • CENTRALISING EVERYTHING IS NOT THE WAY TO GO;IT IS AN EXCUSE TO CUT STAFF NUMBERS AND REDUCE QUALITY OF SERVICE AND PUSH EXTRA COSTS ONTO PEOPLE,ALREADY SUFFERING FROM TRANSPORT CUTS AND LONGER TRAVELLING TIMES AND EXTRA COSTS!
  • In this day and age services should be upgraded hot disbanded.
