Proposed New Premises
We have given due consideration to all the options open to us following the recent Planning Committee meeting where our preferred option for the provision of a medical centre for the town of Stow and the surrounding villages was refused.
We have had no discussions with our advisor since the meeting and have no current plans to appeal the decision. We are excited about any suitable site that delivers a surgery that is acceptable to the NHS and can deliver the services needed by our community. As a result we are continuing our discussions with Tall Trees to see if a facility can be delivered with them.
At the Planning Committee meeting we explained our concerns over this development but we are very keen to continue our meetings with the owner of Tall Trees and her agent to overcome these.
We feel there is no reason why a successful outcome cannot be achieved, but clearly the NHS need to be reassured over plans for a facility and that this provides value for money before they will support it. We also need to be reassured that we can deliver a fit for purpose primary care service to our patients.
We have this week outlined to Tall Trees how successful discussion can continue and are excited at the prospect of a positive outcome.
