Local councillors are urging residents to have their say on the future of a surgery in Hightown.
Partners at the Hightown surgery are writing to patients to seek their views as the facility’s future comes under question once again.
Hightown surgery on Brynycabanau Road was forced to shut in October 2012 due to a shortage of staff, and Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) said it would withhold £5,000 of funding for every month it remains shut from March this year.
In a bid to keep funding, partners decided to reopen the facility temporarily but now the surgery has entered into a consultation with patients as to its future.
Whitegate councillor Brian Cameron has made an appeal to patients to respond to the surgery’s consultation, which ends on November 30th. He said “This facility has been an integral part of the community for many years.
“I am seeking your assistance and support by pursuing this matter with the parties in question to achieve a positive conclusion, so allowing the practice to remain open.”
Cllr Graham Rogers added “It is important that patients make their views clear. This is a vital local facility and we want to make sure that everyone has their say on its future.
“The consultation will allow patients to express their opinions on the importance of a surgery at Hightown to the local community.”
