Have say on NHS services.

PATIENTS are being urged to have their say over the future of adult walk-in services in North Tyneside.

Public meetings are to be held to find out people's views on Shiremoor Health Resource Centre.

NHS North Tyneside Clinical Commissioning Group wants to take the current staff of emergency care nurse practitioners and focus their work on elderly patients.

Dr John Matthews said the aim would be to prevent hospital admissions, by providing more support for people at home and for those waiting to be discharged from hospital.

Two public meetings are being held at the Allotment Social Club and Institute on North Terrace in West Allotment on Monday, January 21 and Monday, February 18, from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.

There are no plans to change walk-in services for children.
