What's the point of having a brand new medical centre if people stick with their own doctor? Best way to make it look like a success when it opens is to get rid of what's there now and build demand for the new service by making people travel to Orford for couple of years. I hope we keep a close eye on the residents of Great Sankey and the impact this chess game has on their health. It's an abomination!

Who is the NHS for? Who is it supposed to serve managers or patients? It makes you wonder whether those managing the service really understand what they are doing or are up to the job. There is certainly a complete lack of official empathy.

Hope something comes from this meeting (which I attended). From what I could see NHS Warrington were quite happy to do nothing and let all the patient from Sankey Medical Centre move to other practices. No effort was made to fill this void in Sankey.

My opinion is that you've all been seriously let down. No one has thought about the effect on your health just about the shiny new success story they'll be able to take the credit for down the line.
