The Liberal Party Merseyside Association is supporting a community campaign to stop the closure of the Park View Medical Centre in Tuebrook, Liverpool.
This important local resource faces closure within 2 months as it’s contract with the NHS Cheshire and Merseyside integrated care board (ICB) finishes and no replacement provider has been found.
Following a recent campaign meeting at the Tuebrook Hope centre, city councillor and Liberal Party leader Steve Radford told the Liverpool Echo “We’re fighting for every surgery in the community because every surgery will suffer if this closes.”
In the same article Tuebrook Larkhill ward member, Cllr Billy Lake, was quoted as saying “We’ve seen this before, we’ve fought it before, and we’ll fight it again.”
Every one of the 2800 patients to be moved will add to the waiting lists of local surgeries where people are already struggling to gain access to health services.
