SOS e-Petition against GP Surgery cuts

Dear All,

Here is the joint petition that St Andrews, the Barkantine and the SOS Campaign team have formed together to fight against NHS cuts. We trust you will be able to support this campaign and will add your name to the petition.

This campaign means a lot to all of us  and the more support we can get behind it, the better chance we have of succeeding. You can read more and sign the petition here:

NHS England wants to reduce the opening hours of and cut funding to the Barkantine Practice in Tower Hamlets.

The Government says it is promoting 8am to 8pm 7 day opening hours for patients to access GP services. Here at the Barkantine Practice we have been providing these opening hours for our patients for the last five years, and our patients tell us they really appreciate these extended hours.

However, as part of their cuts to services, NHS England wants to cut your GP’s opening hours down to 8am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday and 9am-1pm Saturday morning.

They also want to cut funding to the Barkantine by up to 40%, meaning that there will be real cuts to the services we can provide and this will threaten the viability of the practice.

 As the Barkantine Walk-In-Centre, which provides a service to local residents, visitors and commuters, is part of our contract, this is also under review and threat of being decommissioned.

 If you are against these cuts to NHS Services please support us by signing the e-petition below:

Barkantine Walk In Centre

We operate a Walk-in-Centre  which is open from 8.00am to 8.00pm, 7 days a week including weekends and bank holidays. Everybody is welcome to use the service. No appointment is necessary; you just walk in and wait. Please note that at busy times the wait can be up to 4 hours. Please also note that, though we are open until 8pm, you may be turned away before 8pm if the walk in centre is already very busy.
