Save Sidwell Street Exeter NHS Walk-in Centre

We the undersigned believe that the Sidwell Street Walk-in Centre is an essential and well-located NHS facility in the centre of our city. We demand the Clinical Commissioning Group to keep it open.

Why is this important?

The NHS Walk-in Centre in Sidwell Street, Exeter is centrally located, which makes it very accessible to everyone living in Exeter. It is open from 8AM to 4PM every day (10AM-4PM Sundays) and is available to everyone in the community, whether or not registered with a GP - on a drop-in basis. This means there are many users, including young people to whom it provides a unique point of access to NHS healthcare services, without which they would have none. It also takes pressure off already stretched A&E. We want the CCG to commit to keeping this service open for the future.

Reasons for signing

  • I THINK ALL PEOPLE FROM ALL PARTS OF THE UK SHOULD SIGN ALL THEN THE NUMBERS WOULD BE SO HIGH ON CAMPAIGN.
  • If the Tories continue to cut finances and service to the NHS we will soon no longer be the envy of the world with our free NHS Service. If this continues the NHS will simply disappear and we will have to rely on health insurance which many poor people simply cannot afford.
  • The Tory Government seem bent on destroying the NHS by cutting staff & services constantly. An NHS Walk-In Centre is essential to reduce the pressures on hospitals
