Law surgery for web 3

Branch medical surgery in Law is due to close in June.

 

I was incredibly disappointed to learn that the Logan medical practice intends to close its branch surgery in the village of Law on the first of June, to concentrate its services at the Houldsworth Centre in Wishaw. While they seek to reassure patients that they will not need to change practice, it is a blow for villagers who will now need to travel to appointments to Wishaw.

Letters have gone out to households in Law informing them of the decision.

This will cause great concern to the patients, especially elderly patients and those without cars facing the journey to Wishaw.

I have been in direct contact with the practice, who I hope to meet ASAP, and NHS Lanarkshire. While this decision seems final, I am determined to explore what can be done to help my constituents maintain access to local health provision.

I am also contacting the local transport body to point out that the previous reduction in services between Law and Wishaw will become an even more pressing issue, and urge them to consider the social need for this route.

I am also working with my colleague Councillor David Shearer to ensure we can do what we can for the people in Law.
