Proposed relocation of the Podiatry and Speech & Language Therapy services from Great Sutton Medical Centre Community Clinic

CWP currently provides Podiatry and children’s Speech and Language Therapy (SALT) services from the community clinic based at Great Sutton Medical Centre in Ellesmere Port.

It is our proposal that the Podiatry service is relocated to Hope Farm Clinic, which is just under two miles away, and the SALT service is relocated to the following locations across Ellesmere Port:

  • Cherrybank Resource Centre in Wellington Road, under two miles away
  • Portside Children’s Centre in Egerton Street and, under three miles away
  • Parklands Children’s Centre in Little Sutton, under one mile away.

While the delivery model for both services will remain the same the proposed new settings will provide an improved patient experience at minimal disruption for people accessing these services.

Before progressing with this relocation, we would like to hold a period of engagement, over February, capturing the views of patients, the public and wider stakeholders to ensure views are roundly captured and considered. This document provides information that has informed this proposed short-distance relocation.

Sharing your views

We have discussed the service change with Healthwatch Cheshire who are not aware of any local objections via their networks and are happy to support our period of engagement during February.

If you would like to provide feedback during this period please contact Patient Advice and Liaison Service via the Freephone number 0800 195 4462 or via cwp.PALS@nhs.net by Friday 26th February 2020.

Based on feedback received, the changes would be effective from March 2021.
