The reports of closure early in the New Year of the Spring Farm GP surgery in Upminster Road North have brought about protests from local residents.

 

This week Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham and Rainham has been contacted by a number of very concerned South Hornchurch residents regarding access to local healthcare. The walk-in services at South Hornchurch Medical Centre closed at the start of April as a response to Covid-19, and now the only service available is in Harold Wood which is a significant journey for many residents.

The Harold Wood Polyclinic is over an hour’s journey from South Hornchurch Medical Centre and either comprises of two buses or a bus and train for residents without cars.
