The NWSCCG have today published their report of the two meetings held in October to inform and consult with local residents on the short and longer term future of the Weybridge Health Centre.
Of crucial interest to Weybridge is the CCG’s position on replacing the Walk-in Centre service on the site. Extracts on this subject are:
Are the treatment room services going back on site just to support the GP practices and Weybridge patients, or for wider use?
It is the CCG’s intention to support the re-provision of treatment room services for the wider population and as such we have requested proposals from our Providers.
Will there be a Walk-in Centre in the new building?
Before we decide exactly which services will be in the new building, we want to engage the local community and our partners to make sure the new facility provides the right services to meet the needs of the local population.
We understand the history and passion for the Walk-in Centre, and we will need to take that into account when planning our consultation. However, we think it’s right to take this opportunity to think carefully about what services we need and how services might be delivered differently, and better, in the future.
We very much want to design this new facility with the help of the local community and as part of our engagement, we will think carefully about the type of services delivered at the Walk-in Centre, and others, to make sure local people have the right access to urgent, on the day care. Access to timely care outside of what is traditionally provided by GPs is certainly what we are thinking and wanting to bring back onto the site.
You will find more questions from people who attended the meetings and the NWSCCG’s responses on a dedicated page on the NWSCCG website.
