Nick Kilby and I, together with other Surbiton Neighbourhood Councillors have met with representatives from the Police, Primary Care Trust (PCT), GP surgeries and the voluntary sector to explore the exciting possibility of delivering a range of community services from the Surbiton Hospital site – ‘a community hub’.
The ‘fact-finding’ event took place on 4 February. It follows the PCT’s announcement that it plans to develop a new £15m polyclinic on the Ewell Road site offering a range of health services to the local community.
Plans under development by the PCT would enable patients to access a GP seven days a week, as well as having other NHS services on site. The aim of the fact-finding event was to explore what other complementary services could run alongside those offered by the PCT.
In the near future, the Council will be having further discussions with the PCT and other partners and will consult extensively with local residents.
