The Marches and Westfield GP surgeries deliver services to over 10% of the population of Herefordshire from their current base in Leominster. They are the only GP surgeries in the largest market town in the County. Their current premises in Westfield Walk are approximately 40% undersized with no option to extend or adapt. There is no patient parking, access is poor and it has been reported that this causes local safety issues for local residents.
As a result of these issues, a project board has been set up to include a number of organisations, including the two GP surgeries, all of whom have come together to look at how service provision could be improved for Leominster residents. They have been looking at ideas around improved premises and improved services and in the coming months will be seeking the views and thoughts of the wider Leominster community. Once we have more details about this, we will let Leominster residents know so watch this space!
