Petition for shropdoc to be permanently based in Newtown
Calling for shropdoc to be permanently based in Newtown.
It is not right that the people of Newtown have only limited cover from the service out of hours Newtownians have to travel to Welshpool to see the doctor in the evenings, weekends or bank holidays.
Elderly people, parents with sick children or anyone who feels unwell find it hard to travel long distances for treatment. With the problems that Newtown has with the traffic it is not always easy to travel to Welshpool.
What about people without cars and on low incomes, with the ever increasing fuel prices - what happens to our carbon footprint?
The minor injury unit in Newtown does an excellant job during the day however parking is a major problem and is not open 24 hours. We are the largest town in Powys we deserve 24hr cover in Newtown.
