Save Meadow Parade Doctors Surgery

Save Meadow Parade Doctors Surgery

Guarantee the continuing presence of a doctors surgery at Meadow Parade after the planned spring review.To restore surgery hours to two surgeries per day,and to continue to provide a full service for local people.

Why is this important?

Local doctors surgeries are being closed at an alarming rate. This has happened at short notice, and with no consultation with patients. This denies us access to a local surgery. Meadow Parade surgery will only be open in mornings from now on, with a review in spring which may lead to it closing altogether, leaving NO doctors surgery in Rottingdean. The nearest will be in Saltdean, which is difficult and inconvenient for local people, especially the elderly and infirm, to get to.

Reasons for signing

  • It is well used and closing it simply puts cost and inconvenience on to patients locally.
  • The National Health Sevice is under attack and we need to preserve our local services - what could be more important?
  • My local surgery which is about a mile from here has just been closed. We cannot afford to lose another one. People will die as a result these cutbacks.

Great that we have now gathered over 800 signatures in just over a week.
Also good news in that I have heard from LLoyd Russell-Moyle our local MP who has pledged his support.I know he was active in fighting the closure of The Ridgeway surgery in Woodingdean.He made it clear a plan must be put in place to prevent further surgery closures as well as to encourage the opening of new ones.
