Health group says NHS England acted 'inappropriately' over Sankey closure

Warrington Guardian: Sankey Medical Centre is now closed Sankey Medical Centre is now closed

THE town’s independent health watchdog has said NHS England has acted improperly closing Sankey Medical Centre without consulting the patients who are affected by the change.

Healthwatch Warrington is the latest organisation to criticise the move after the Warrington Guardian reported Great Sankey patients would now be treated in Orford.

Healthwatch has written to NHS England to ask whether the correct procedures to move/ close a surgery had been used.

Elaine Packer, Healthwatch Warrington manager, said: “Services cannot just be changed without warning, the health of people in Great Sankey is too important for that.

“To date a large number of patients affected have raised their concerns with Healthwatch Warrington which are all being logged and shared with the relevant bodies.”

In the kingdom of the blind, the eyed man is king. You have eyes but fail to see. Close a surgery to create demand for a new development. If anyone dies because of poor care between now and the day it opens its doors...who cares so long as the new development is a big success.

Fool, they are integrating the swimming pool into a health centre including a GP service for the benefit of Sankey. Not only, when it's completed, will it save the NHS rent on it's previous premises it will probably be an all round better environment for it's patients. You on the other hand seem to be talking out of your "one eye" and have still not come back to me with an intelligent answer to my question on the other subject.

Sorry old bean, I just don't live on here in the same way that you do. Calling me a fool wasn't very nice. Probably will be all the things you say but would have been better to given people a choice rather than take away their surgery until the new facility is completed.

Totally agree Grumpy.
PageA, surely if a patient has a life threatening illness they would go to the hospital, not the medical centre.

They shut this surgery and have inconvenienced people in great sankey to ensure that the yet to be built new development is a success. Really? If you thought you might have a problem, you'd go to the hospital and not your gp?

There are many departments at the hospital, not just A&E. I'd probably try and get an appointment at the appropriate department or at another health centre in the area.
