HUNDREDS have signed a petition asking for Hereford's new GP walk-in centre to stay at Asda.

Here is Cllr Powell handing over the petition

Almost 700 people are opposed to it being moved to a new purpose-built unit near the A&E department at the County Hospital.

Belmont ward Councillor Glenda Powell said she had been asked by many people to start up a petition calling for the new centre to stay south of the river.

Coun Powell said since it had opened last December, 973 patients had visited GPs there and people were very happy with its position.

Petition forms placed at the Oval and Putson Post Offices attracted 654 signatures in four weeks and were handed to Herefordshire Council chairman John Stone last week.

This is a great service and should stay. While it is at Asda, you have no parking problems, is very central and should you need a prescription Asda is the only place to get one til 11pm...so why the need to move it?


Good work Glenda, lets hope the petition goes to those that see sense and not waste time spending money on a purpose-built buiding at the hospital that we dont need.
