PORTSMOUTH South MP Flick Drummond has urged residents to make their feelings known about plans to close the Guildhall Walk GP surgery and walk-in centre.

The consultation on plans to move facilities to the St Mary’s health campus in Milton ends on February 19.

Mrs Drummond has written to the city’s Clinical Commissioning Group stating her opposition to the proposal, saying it is away from patients and public transport routes.

She said: ‘I very much appreciate the CCG’s intentions are good, but I simply cannot see how taking such an important service away from a place where people can access it easily can be good for patient care. I have heard similar concerns from constituents.’
