Petition For NHS Weybridge Walk In Centre To Return Following The Fire
Petition For CCG To Rebuild Or Replace Weybridge Walk In Centre, Following The Fire Earlier This Year
The Online Petition Has Almost 2,900 Signatures On 13th Ocober 2017
The following wording is from the petition page
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
The Weybridge Walk in Centre was at the heart of Weybridge and needs to be replaced. The CCG are intending that Weybridge residents in need of emergency care will have to travel to St Peters or Woking. Both alternatives are overstretched at the moment. This is assuming that people can get to either location as this is very hard for those who require to use public transport.
BRING BACK THE CENTRE IT IS NEEDED, WE NEED IT.

Public information meetings on Tuesday 17 October 2017 to update local residents following the fire at Weybridge Community Hospital
Change Of Venue For The Weybridge Hospital Meetings
Weybridge residents have shown such strong interest in what is happening at the Weybridge Hospital site that the venue for the two public meetings on Tuesday has been changed to accommodate more attendees.
Yesterday Cllr Andrew Davis got things moving to find more space and, happily, Brian Prothero was able to offer St James’ church as a venue for this important public meeting. The church has a capacity of over 350, so no-one should be left out.
In case you have not yet done so, there is still time to complete our short Weybridge Hospital replacement Survey which asks what services you have used, which you would like to keep and what other services you would like to see on the site.
We are committed to seeing that Weybridge has the best possible health and care services on the Hospital site.
These meetings were originally planned to be held at The Weybridge Centre for the Community, See below for the original meeting notification. The times are the same as shown below.

Times: Meetings at at 2pm – 3.30pm and 7.30pm – 9pm.
Weybridge residents have been shocked by the sad news that Weybridge Hospital, the NHS Walk-In Centre and the two GP Surgeries in the Health Centre have been destroyed by a massive fire.
Local residents were evacuated as a massive blaze lit the skies of Weybridge, due to a fire at the Health Cente in Church Street. There have been reports of loud explosions as the fire took hold, just after midnight (morning of July 12th).
We have been informed that nobody has been hurt, but there is concern about the massive disruption and loss of vital health services. The town centre has been closed between Heath Road and Baker Street as Emergency Services attend to the fire, which was still bellowing smoke mid-morning.
Residents have been taking refuge at St James’ Parish Church, where locals have been rallying to help those displaced. There has been a major impact on traffic due to the road closure and St Charles Borromeo School has been closed for the day.
Surrey Police have asked people to avoid the area around Church Street.
At its peak, the fire was attended by 8 pumps from the fire brigade, using 2 aerial ladder platforms.
Surrey Search & Rescue also attended to fly drones in support of the Fire & Rescue teams.
