Parsons Green Walk-In Centre

Petition to: (1) Hammersmith & Fulham Clinical Commissioning Group, (2) NHS England, and (3) Matt Hancock, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care:

We the undersigned call on you to ensure that the current scope of services is maintained at the Parsons Green Walk-in Centre and that any potential changes are implemented solely following a full public consultation.

Background

Last year the Hammersmith & Fulham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) announced that, due to national guidance, it would no longer be possible to continue providing the services at the Parsons Green Walk-In Centre in their current form after the end of 2019. Subsequently, it was announced that an extension had been granted so current services could continue until 31 March 2020. During the recent election campaign, Chelsea & Fulham MP Greg Hands promised constituents that no such changes would be made at all, claiming that “the future of the very popular Parsons Green Walk-In Centre has been secured”.

However, when the local Lib Dem team attended the most recent Governing Body Meeting of the CCG on 14th January and asked for an update on this issue, we were informed that the Walk-In Centre remains at risk. They said that no assurances had been given to the CCG regarding the Centre’s future after 31 March and so a downgrade of services remains possible after that date. Disturbingly, the CGG also stated that they are unable to even formulate alternatives or consult the public given the lack of national guidance.

It is a major cause for concern that this key local resource appears to be threatened with a possible downgrade in the near future despite promises made so recently by the local Conservative MP. Hammersmith & Fulham Liberal Democrats are campaigning to save this vital service. As part of this, we are asking residents to sign this petition to show their support for the continuation of services at the Parsons Green Walk-In Centre.
