Shout Out: Swindon on Twitter has asked the question: Whats happening at Freshbrook Surgery?
The rumours are that it’s going to close an extra two days a week, so will only open on Monday and Wednesday mornings and Fridays which will greatly impact patients struggling to get appointments currently.
Being offered appointments at Ridge Green Surgery is not an option for the many elderly local residents in Freshbrook and Grange Park.
SOS Swindon says the practice owner has not told any of the patients that he’s applying to close on the extra days.
Independent health watchdog organisation Healthwatch Swindon is investigating the issue and will be raising it at the West Locality Meeting in West Swindon Library on Monday 14 July starting 7.30pm. (Information session and refreshments from 6.30pm)
All invited to attend.
