Itchen MP John Denham has reacted to the news that the future of Bitterne Walk in Health Centre is being reviewed.

“Bitterne Walk in Centre was one of the first walk-in centres in the country — a real pioneer,” said Mr Denham. “ It’s popular with patients, an important local service and part of the community.
“If it isn’t currently meeting its purposes then its role should be developed in line with experience and patients’ wishes so that the healthcare challenges we face in Southampton can be properly met.  It would be a real shame if the walk-in centre was simply given up on.  It’s too important to close.”
Discussions about Bitterne Walk in Centre are part of a review of unscheduled care announced by Southampton City Primary Care Trust. The Trust’s Board will be considering a paper on the future of the walk-in centre at its next meeting.
