The following email has been forwarded to LOSRA by Ashford North Residents’ Association:

Dear Residents

You may be aware the Blanche Heriot Unit at Ashford & St Peters  is planned to close on 30th September 2017.

This will leave no level 3 Sexual Health Clinic  in this area - the closest being several miles away in Guildford or Kingston. The replacement services are not as they purport to be and will not provide the same level of cover as the Blanche Heriot unit does.

  1. They see a vast number of pts- and because it is a confidential service the number of people they see is not always appreciated
  2. Breaking up a very efficient, humble, capable, experienced team- who often stay beyond their allotted hours
  3. Fall out on the local GP community will be significant.
  4. Short sighted closure with the potential effect of the spread of untreated sexual disease causing significant community and health service problems.

If you would like to make you voice heard and support keeping the Blanche Heriot unit open then please sign the petition at https://www.change.org/p/keep-blanche-heriot-unit-at-st-peter-s-hospital-open
