Walk-in services at Belmont Health Centre could be cut completely, under plans by Harrow Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
Besides making patients phone NHS 111 before being allowed to use the services of Belmont Health Centre, the plans also propose that people not resident in Harrow should be refused treatment.
Adam Bernard, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary candidate for Harrow East said: “The plan seems to be that Harrow CCG will save money by forcing many people to seek treatment elsewhere. That might be good accountancy but it doesn’t seem likely to be good for patients.”
Harrow Liberal Democrats have launched a petition to save the walk-in service: https://www.harrowlibdems.org/belmont_health_centre
