I have met with Jeremy Hunt, the Secretary of State, to make clear the urgency of a review into the proposed closure of Deer Park Medical Centre and the enormous value of the surgery.
I was impressed with his knowledge of the matter from my earlier correspondence, and was crystal clear as to the urgency of the matter, with OCCG threatening closure at the end of this month.
I am confident that the Secretary of State will refer this matter for independent review and we will hear more shortly.
I understand the worry of patients who have been left in limbo and are fearing the worst for their surgery. I will of course look to keep constituents up to date with any further updates as soon as I learn of them.
