Newtown Surgery Petition - The Letter
Dear Dr Sharp
As a patient of Eildon Medical Practice, I would like to support the call for a new, purpose built medical centre in Newtown St Boswells.
I would also like to point out that we need a continuing service provision on the current site until the new one is agreed and completed.
I am concerned that any other option would have a detrimental impact on the patients that use the practice in Newtown, in particular with an ever increasing village population. and extensive expansion plans for the future, with more patients to register, Increased travel time, access to transport and cost may be beyond the means of many, and the fact we have an ageing population also contributes to the necessity of keeping the practice in the village.
I therefore ask NHS Borders to guarantee that the practice continues in the existing building whilst making sure the new purpose built health centre will be built in Newtown St Boswells.
