In July 2012 Bolton's Clinical Commissioning Group closed our NHS walk-in centre at Lever Chambers, claiming it created a demand that hadn't been there and other services could handle local health issues.
Today people are struggling to get an appointment with their GP when they need it, and A&E services are so stretched that it created a "major incident" in January 2015 with patients waiting over 12 hours for a bed. The walk-in centre would ease pressure on both of these services.
Join me in calling for the walk-in centre to re-open by signing my petition below.
We the undersigned agree that Bolton’s NHS walk-in centre at Lever Chambers should never have been closed. We call on Bolton’s Clinical Commissioning Group to reverse this decision and re-open the walk-in centre as soon as possible.
