Save Jarrow Walk In Centre

Keep open the Walk In Centre at Palmer's Hospital Jarrow

Why is this important?

The Walk In Centre is easily accessible and an excellent service used by more than 27,000 people last year. Local people are very concerned at the prospect of losing this local facility and feel the District Hospital in South Shields as an alternative is out of the way. Waiting 2 weeks to see a GP is not an option for worried parents with poorly kids, the elderly, and vulnerable patients. The Walk In Centre is a prime example of Right Treatment, Right Time, Right Place.

Reasons for signing

  • This has got to be saved as the old and infirm can not travel to south shields general A and E they must have something on there door steps some GP's are close at certain times ,and you can't always get an appoint ment even though the Patients Charterstipulates you must be seen by a GP with in 24 hours
  • I depend on this local service for my daughter
  • I have used this myself. At a time when A&E services as well as GPs are under growing pressure this is not the time to cut this service

Local councillors not happy at low profile consultation that many people haven't heard of - looking for a month's extension. No information in surgeries, libraries or the Walk In Centre itself. CCG exec meeting on Thursday 17th July - haven't agreed as yet! Keep signing! No decision about us without us!
