A CONSULTATION into urgent care services in Greenwich has been extended until the end of the month (JAN 31) after resident feedback.

Proposals include putting GPs at the heart of local urgent health services, as part of the Right Care First Time public consultation run by NHS Greenwich Clinical Commissioning Group

They also include relocating an out-of-hours GP service from Shooters Hill Road to Queen Elizabeth Hospital as well as providing additional out-of-hours facilities in Thamesmead and Eltham.

Chair of NHS Greenwich CCG Dr Hany Wahba, said: "The Right Care, First Time public consultation is about improving local urgent care services to help make Greenwich a healthier place to live and work.

"We are committed to delivering high-quality NHS services in Greenwich and we urge you to help shape the future of your local NHS.

“We have met many people at public events since the consultation started in early November, and the information about our plans is available in GP practices, libraries and on our website.

"When we were asked to extend the public consultation period we agreed as we want to hear as many views as possible before we decide on the future of services for patients."
