We at CLT worked closely with many Emsworth groups under the banner ‘Emsworth United’ and, together with other organisations and local politicians, we now have the new GP surgery for Emsworth welcoming its first patients in early May.
It is incredible how the community working together can make things happen. The partnership of the community with Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group and the local surgery means that Emsworth’s Surgery can now offer a high-quality building for all its patients.
Sara Tiller, Managing Director of NHS South Eastern Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “We share everyone’s excitement at what will be a terrific new health facility for people in the Emsworth area. Although the cottage hospital had been closed for several years, it is held very dear to many people’s hearts – and its memory and contribution to health over the decades will live on in the new surgery, where parts of the old building have been lovingly retained and professionally restored by the contractors.“ The local community has been involved every step of the way in helping to decide the best location for the facility and in the planning to help make it a reality.
Emsworth CLT would like to thank all those involved in the re-development of the cottage hospital into a new state-of-the-art surgery. A fantastic achievement by all.
