Bosses at NHS Norfolk and Waveney announced that the walk in centre on Rouen Road will not be closing down. Following this news, the Eastern Daily Press asked me for my thoughts, this is what I told them:
“This shows that speaking up and speaking out can change things – it can affect change.
I think the people of Norwich will be extremely pleased. I don’t think anyone believed the changes would cater for them.
Now we must make sure that they [NHS Norfolk and Waveney] don’t make changes elsewhere that negatively affect the city.”
Myself, Norwich North’s prospective parliamentary candidate for Labour, Alice Macdonald, and Norwich Labour have campaigned for months and the over 8,000 people that signed the petition to save the walk in centre have played an important role in this decision.
