Shrewsbury Town Council will be hosting an extraordinary meeting at 6pm on the 4th of October at St Chad’s Church. Residents are being encouraged to register for a ticket online to reserve their seat, an offer already taken by many including a growing number of former Shrewsbury GPs concerned by proposals.

Rob Park is a retired Shrewsbury GP who spoke at the Save Our Surgeries protest. Joined by former local GPs Jacques Maurice and Des Clesham, he said: “It is vitally important that Shrewsbury residents come along to the meeting on the 4th October.

“We have to make sure that NHS bosses undertake a proper consultation, not a sham where their plan to close six surgeries wins by default. A strong attendance at the extraordinary meeting is another way of showing how strong public sentiment is on this. “

Councillor Alex Wagner has been campaigning to protect Shrewsbury GP services from closure.

He added: “I have been out knocking on doors, leading protests, and talking to thousands of residents. The feedback is clear – Shrewsbury people want a decent local GP and will not settle for a proposal that window-dresses further cuts. This is not all-or-nothing and we need to continue showing that the public do not give their consent to these changes.
