Futures Forum: Stowford Lodge Health Centre: the background
Home - Sidmouth Herald
There will be an open meeting for all Sidmouth residents, organised by the Patients Forum on Wednesday 30th October, with an opportunity to see the latest plans.
Details have not yet been finalised - but will follow.
There is some disquiet, however:
1. Given a choice, large numbers of residents would still prefer the main Medical Centre to be in the centre of town. [see letter below]
2. There had been the alternative choice of expanding the Centre on the current site, with hopes of cooperating with the County Council on refurbishment projects for the adjacent Library. [see Sid Valley Practice notes below]
3. The computer images give the proposed new building the appearance of a 1960s office block. [see Herald article above] And yet new NHS financed GP surgeries can look inviting..... e.g. the relatively new Surgery in Lyme:
