Seven polyclinics to open in London29th April 2009
Seven polyclinics are set to open in London in the near future.
The first, Loxford Polyclinic in Redbridge, is purpose built and will open in June. The others – in Hounslow, Harrow, Lambeth, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest – are existing health centres that are extending their services. All will offer extended-hours GP and other services, including pharmacy and diagnostics.
Lord Darzi’s report on reforming the NHS in the capital, A Framework for Action, said five to 10 polyclinics should be developed by April 2009, though some GPs have opposed the move.
