Longstanding GP practice to be turned into flats

Comment

In deprived areas quality of care is closely linked to proximity - for the frail and those with young children. For many they would happily forego the architectural masterpiece health centre with bells and whistles for a local practice with doctors and nurses. Big health centres are often a few miles away - and for those who find 400m a struggle, that is too far. Local access also ensures GP's know their patients and areas, this mantra of federating is destructive.
