Mary presents 2,000 strong petition to Parliament to save King Street Health Centre

On Wednesday 11 January, Mary presented a 2,000 strong petition to Parliament to save King Street Health Centre in Wakefield, which is under threat of closure.

NHS Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is consulting on whether to extend the GP service contract at King Street Health Centre beyond March.

Mary’s petition to save King Street GP surgery has been signed by almost 2,000 local residents and has been submitted to the consultation for consideration. 

Mary said:

With local GP and Pinderfields A&E services under pressure, King Street Health Centre is a vital service and I’m delighted that so many residents got involved with this campaign.

“With Pinderfields A&E directing patients to King Street Health Centre over winter, we can’t afford to lose this valued local service. I’ve called on the Government and Wakefield CCG to take all necessary steps to ensure that King Street Health Centre remains open.”
