Rochford District Council – Central Area Committee 12 June 2007

NO members of the public attended.  Why?

But there were 14 paid employees of RDC present (cost?).  And at least 7 paid employees of Essex County Council who were not presenting (cost?).

RDC Executive Councillor Mavis Webster was down to present on Tourism but she did not turn up nor send apologies.

Still No NHS Dentists for Hawkwell and Hockley

June 10, 2007 by · Leave a Comment 

The Hockley Residents Association (fondly known as the HRA) has been campaigning for several years to get NHS Dentists for our area.

Brian Guyett, the Chairman of the HRA, is leading the campaign and I called him for an update.

Effectively, we are a bit stalled.  Our petition to Rosie Winterton was met with the predictable straight bat – “its down to the PCT”.
 
PCT say no money and seem to be favouring the less socially affluent areas of the District (always assuming they can get a dentist to open there).
 
So our aim is to raise local profile and invite PCT to a meeting in the autumn.  Sadly, despite best efforts we also got little press coverage.

Medical Care : Matter of Concern Number 4, Residents Survey – Hawkwell West 2007

I have been contacted by many people in Rochford District about the PCT intention to close the late Dr. Sen’s Surgeries in Hawkwell and Rochford.

I understand that a final decision will be made by the NHS Primary Care Trust on 29 March 2007, 12.30 pm at Harcourt House, Harcourt Avenue, Southend.  This meeting is open to the public.

Let me say that I have not been consulted, nor have the imperative reasons why these have to close been made known to me by the PCT.
