Hundreds of residents have backed Alan Mak in his Emsworth Surgery Campaign with the local MP encouraging everyone to sign his petition.
The campaign was launched a month ago to lobby the Surgery’s doctors to keep an ongoing presence in the town centre if their proposed surgery move to Redlands Grange goes ahead. The doctors are expected to make a final decision on whether to move to the site north of the town in the coming months.
Alan said he was ramping up his efforts, with the preferred aim being for a satellite surgery in the town centre, if the proposed move goes ahead. The doctors currently operate a satellite surgery in Westbourne, close to the location of the new Redlands Grange clinic, so the precedent already exists.
He said: “Thank you to everyone who has backed me in my community campaign so far. Together our efforts can make a real difference. Over the coming months I’ll be continuing to put pressure on the doctors, and ensure that the option for an ongoing presence in the town centre is fully explored.
“I encourage everyone who has not yet done so to sign my petition. The more people that sign-up the stronger the message that we can send to the doctors. Equally, please join me to deliver leaflets across Emsworth so we can secure even more support for our campaign.”
To join the campaign visit alanmak.org.uk/surgery. Paper copies of the petition can be found in H.H. Treagust & Sons Butchers in the town.
In addition, Alan will be running a number of delivery sessions in Emsworth over the next couple of weeks where he will be hand delivering leaflets to let residents know about the campaign. To join him visit alanmak.org.uk/surgery to sign-up
