THE public consultation into the future of the Walk In Centre at Eastbourne Railway Station ends today.

There IS still time to have your say.

The consultation into the closure was reopened by the CCG on 4th August and will run until today.

The NHS says no decision has been made but argues services will be enhanced by the closure as they will be provided in a better way.

They also say keeping it open is not the best use of public money.

Opponents think otherwise.

They say: “Our walk-in centre provides a vital service enabling anyone who feels unwell access to a GP even if their GP cannot offer them an appointment or if they are a visitor to the town. 

“As Eastbourne relies on visitor numbers it makes perfect sense to provide them with a healthcae facility. 

“The walk-in centre will take pressure off our already over-burdened A&E unit and its town centre location is of huge importance.

“We do not know yet, how primary care services are going to change over coming years but we do know its likely we will see our access to GP appointments reduced.”
