Nottinghamshire PCT have announced that their “preferred option” is to close the Stapleford Walk-In Centre and move the service to the Accident and Emergency Department at the QMC . Under the last Government Notts PCT had budget retraints which means they must make savings of £80 million in the next two years. The PCT believe it makes monetary and clinical sense to improve services at the QMC by offering a walk in centre there rather than continue the service in Stapleford.
12,000 people a year use the Stapleford Walk-In Centre and MP Anna Soubry has already received dozens of emails from people singing its praises.
