My vision for one-stop health shop

With regard to your report of my campaign to save the Saxmundham One-Stop Shop (News, May 10), I would like to make clear that this pioneering one-stop health shop is between the detailed planning and building stages.

It is in order to realise this vision that I have written to Health Secreatry John Reid to inform him of the breadth of primary care services we plan to deliver from one well-located site as well as to demonstrate the partnership with social care that we have developed over the last two years. We sincerely expect that by providing full explanation we will avoid a fighting stage

It is a disappointment to us that the rules have changed since we started playing the game, but this is why we have referees to interpret the 'NHS advantage' rule.
