Express and Star- Saturday 30th May 2009
New doctor surgeries to open doors. Three new family doctor surgeries and a new walk-in centre will open in a Black Country borough on Monday- providing 18,000 extra places for new patients. It is the first time for more than five years that Sandwell has seen an increase in family doctor provision. The practices will be based in Wednesbury Leisure Centre, High Bullen, the Malling Health Centre in Parsonage Street, West Bromwich and at Warley Rugby Football club in Western Road. Dr Simon Mitchell, director of Clinical Development and Quality for Sandwell Primary Care Trust said: “patients in Sandwell have often told us that they have difficulty accessing their family doctor. We are now delighted to be able to offer them a greater choice of services.”
Our campaign for better health facilities in Great Barr is getting close to having its first “event” I must phone our PCT sometime today to let them know details so that if they wish they can send along a spokesperson to explain why our clinic is three years late with no recovery plan.
