Clive Efford - A Strong Voice for Eltham and Plumstead

Save The Source

the_source.jpgThe Source health centre in Sibthorpe Road is threatened with closure because of government cuts to health spending.  

Since it opened, The Source has provided excellent care for the local community on the Horn Park Estate, treating over 5,000 patients per year for a wide range of conditions including minor illnesses and injuries and carrying out vital childhood and flu vaccinations.

The Source provides a vital service for all residents on the Horn Park Estate providing great value for money and should not be closed.

From talking to residents on the Horn Park Estate, it is clear how strongly local people feel that the Source should be saved. Arguments that other GPs are available within acceptable distances ignore the difficulty of travelling to those places (especially for elderly people), the relative geographical isolation of the estate (which is bounded by the A20 and the South Circular), and the concern amongst residents when the last GP practice on the Estate closed some years ago – which led, after pressure from Clive Efford MP, to the creation of the Source.

My parents aged 80 & 75 live in Sibthorpe Road, the source is a life line to them, the nurses that work there do the work of the GP’s because it is so hard to get a doctors appointment, if any thing this service saves the NHS money. Horn Park estate is once again the forgotten part of the borough.

Been going here for a few years now.

It would be a shame to lose as doctor

Appointments are getting worse ,up to a week to see someone. Can’t see point of shutting when we have more people living in area.

The source is widely use and has been many times for myself and my family. If I can’t have the treatment I need there by a caring professional team I will have to travel to the gps for this. Having to book an appointment and be treated by someone who doesn’t know me or my family. This clinic is a life line to young old and all in between.
