Peter Lillley, MP for Hitchin and Harpenden, and County Councillor Nigel Brook expressed concern that the proposal to close the weekly GPs? surgery in Breachwood Green was being treated as a ?fait accompli? before consultation has taken place.
Peter Lilley said: “We urge the PCT to keep an open mind and listen to the views of residents of the village before taking a decision. The facilities at the village hall are certainly not ideal, but it would be extremely difficult for many local residents to travel to Whitwell to consult their GP. ”
A consultation meeting is being held between 9.30 and 11.30am next Tuesday, the 14th September, at the Baptist Church, next to the Village Hall in Breachwood Green.
