151/11/16NP:   SCOPE & CONTENT OF NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN

  • Discussion with Dr B Bora regarding future health provision at Elmdene Surgery

The Chairman welcomed Drs’ Bora and Chen and provided a brief overview of activity which included previous discussion and public consultation resulting in a desire for dedicated health provision within Stone.

 

Dr Bora thanked the meeting for inviting him to contribute to the Neighbourhood Plan process.  He gave background to increasing patient numbers at Elmdene Surgery which have escalated significantly during his time with the practice. The main concern currently is lack of space which could have an impact on providing sufficient services to patients.

 

Dr Bora explained that larger premises, possibly in the form of a Health Centre, are essential to cope with current demands.  He expressed a desire for these to be near the existing practice in the hope of helping to alleviate pressures on the local accident and emergency department as well as having minimum disruption to patients.

 

Elmdene Surgery will continue to look to ways of possibly part-funding provision for a new Health Centre.

 

  • To note World Health Organisation report on Urban Green Spaces and Health – a review of evidence

Directors noted the report.
