Keith raised the current consultation on the future of the Walk in Centre at the Merlyn Vaz Health and Social Care Centre at Health Questions.
“In Leicester, the CCG is proposing to close a walk-in centre in North Evington and move it to another part of the city. Rather than being a walk-in centre, it will become a drive-in centre. Does the Minister agree that it is important that local people are consulted fully on the proposals?”
Philip Dunne, Minister of State for the Department of Health responded stating:
As the right hon. Gentleman knows, service reconfigurations require public consultation. I am not sure whether that particular walk-in centre qualifies, but I am happy to have a look at that.
