Loxford Community Panel

I was privileged to have been a part of the Loxford Polyclinic Community Panel and was rewarded today with an invitation to the grand opening - Where I met with Lord Darzi Under Secretary of State, Department of Health (the Doctor who thought of the Polyclinic model) and Heather O'Meara the Chief Executive of the NHS Redbridge. I availed myself of the opportunity before me and asked about the potential for a stroke trauma centre at King George Hospital or the Polyclinic and was informed residents can affect the decision by contacting IPSOS MORI who are undertaking a survey for this as well as other Health matters. The alternative is that residents of Redbridge will have to travel to the Royal London, Whipps Cross or Queens Hospital - the proposed locations in the existing options.

Ilford south has by far the highest frequency of Strokes in the local vicinity and so I believe we should be given more of a priority.

Please contact IPSOS MORI on:
