Proposal to close ULEY PHARMACY and relocate to CAM – we need your HELP NOW!

Our GP Practice is requesting permission from NHS England to transfer the dispensary at Uley Surgery to the Surgery at Cam.  There is already a dispensing chemist very close to the Cam practice so another one appears not to be needed.

Your Parish Council believes that the loss of our dispensary will cause great hardship to members of the Uley community and surrounding villages and threatens the viability of the entire GP practice here in the village.

The distance to the surgery in Cam is 4.7 miles. Travel by bus is effectively impossible. The taxi fare one way is approximately £11.

IF YOU FEEL STRONGLY, on your own behalf or on behalf of your family and friends in the community who rely on the surgery, please sign the PETITION in the Uley Community Stores.

Or even better SEND AN EMAIL to: Tricia McClelland at pcse.marketentry@nhs.net  and quoting Reference ME1122.

Or  WRITE A LETTER  to Tricia McClelland quoting reference ME1122, at:

Primary Care Support England,

PCSE Enquiries,

P.O Box 350,

DARLINGTON

DL1 9QN

In Uley Community Stores you will find templates of letters or ask a parish councillor to email one to you.

NB    All responses must be sent in by 10th August    NB

A BIG THANK YOU – ULEY PARISH COUNCIL.
