Labour Matters | Harrow Labour | 26 November 2009

In the past 12 months three new polyclinics have started work in Harrow.

The Urgent Care Centre at Northwick Park was the first and is open every day from 8am to 11pm at night. The Alexandra Avenue Polyclinic opened in June and is open to anyone to drop in from 8am to 8pm, while just last week the Pinn Medical Centre in Love Lane, Pinner, had its official launch. It too is open from 8am to 8pm for anyone concerned about their health to drop in without an appointment.

These fantastic new facilities, run by local GPs and nurses, are helping to make medical care more local and more accessible. Many services or appointments that you used to have to visit a major hospital to benefit from are now provided at these new polyclinics.

These three fantastic facilities have been championed by local doctors. The superb Pinn Medical Centre is led by the excellent Dr Amol Kelshiker and partners, while Dr David Lloyd, Dr Ken Walton and their partners lead a superb operation at the Alexandra Avenue polyclinic.

When you add to this good news the fact that the Mount Vernon Cancer Centre’s future has been secured and stroke patients are getting their own specialist centre at Northwick Park, the NHS in Harrow is riding high.
