When and where is the special public meeting of Wirral Council councillors to discuss the Wirral CCG consultation on closing the Walk-In Centres?
Councillors on Wirral Council last month agreed across parties (Labour, Conservative, Lib Dem and Green) to oppose the proposal by Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group (Wirral CCG) to close the Walk-In Centres on the Wirral. The (Wirral CCG consultation on this runs to the 12th December 2018).
There are three Walk-In Centres in different places on the Wirral (the Arrowe Park Walk-In Centre is pictured above) plus three minor injuries or minor illness units. The Wirral CCG is consulting on closing five out of six of these facilities for adults and to change the sixth (the Walk-In Centre at Arrowe Park Hospital pictured above) into an Urgent Treatment Centre.
On Monday evening (12th November 2018) starting at 6.00 pm in the Council Chamber at Wallasey Town Hall, Brighton Street, Seacombe, CH44 8ED councillors on Wirral Council’s Adult Care and Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee and Wirral Council’s Children and Families Overview and Scrutiny Committee will meet in a rare joint special public meeting just to discuss the Urgent Care Review proposals.
During the consultation period concerns have been raised about public transport by bus to and from the existing Walk-In Centres and any replacement provision such as the proposed Urgent Treatment Centre at Arrowe Park Hospital. This is in part because of the recent withdrawal of 20 Avon Bus bus routes. The transport issue was mentioned in this Wirral Globe article today.
Arrowe Park Hospital is in Upton ward where there is a byelection happening for the election of a councillor to Wirral Council.
