Local MP hosts public meeting to save the Walk-In Centre

Hastings and Rother Clinical Commissioning Group has announced plans to move the NHS Walk-In Centre to the Conquest Hospital. Currently based at the Station Plaza, the Walk-In Centre is important to the town due to its central location and accessibility. 

Amber Rudd MP has voiced her concern that taking the Centre away from the town centre and moving it to the northern edge of town will make it less accessible for some of the people who needs its services most. Amber launched a petition to “Save the Walk-In Centre” in August.

Amber is also hosting a public meeting in Hastings with Amanda Philpott, the Chief Officer for the NHS Hastings and Rother Clinical Commissioning Group to ensure that residents’ opposition is heard. The meeting will be held on Friday 21 September, 17:00 – 18:00 at Sussex Coast College, Hastings. The meeting is free to attend and all are welcome.

Amber commented:

“Our Walk-In Centre at Station Plaza is an excellent resource for our town. The plans to move the service from the town centre to the Conquest Hospital will make it harder to access for those who need its services the most.

“I hope that the public meeting will ensure that our town has its voice heard by the CCG. I hope that our local residents will come out to voice their support for the Centre and join me at this meeting.”
