MP takes to High Street to hear views on Whyburn
Hucknall’s member of Parliament, Mark Spencer, spent a morning on Hucknall High Street with members of his team and local councillor, Phil Rostance, to talk to Hucknall residents and shoppers about Whyburn Medical Practice.
Mark Spencer has organised a campaign to try to keep Whyburn open, and has been in contact with NHS England, the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and has even met the Secretary of State for Health, Matt Hancock, to try to find a resolution. Recently, the MP wrote to nearly 7000 Hucknall residents to provide them with an update on the centre.
Commenting, MP Spencer said: “I think it’s essential that Hucknall residents are kept as up to date as possible about Whyburn, so on top of sending out a letter to nearly 7000 odd Hucknall residents, I wanted to get out on the High Street and speak to people face to face to hear their views and thoughts.”
“I’m continuing to push for a solution to Whyburn with the CCG, the NHS and the Government and have made keeping residents informed about any changes or news an absolute priority for me and my team.”
“It’s also really positive to see the High Street so busy. Even though it was bitterly cold, shoppers were out and the market stalls were busy.”
Phil Rostance, a local District and County Councillor in Hucknall who joined the MP on the High Street said: “It’s really important that people are kept in the know about Whyburn, so I’m happy to be out on the High Street with Mark chatting to residents about local issues and hearing what they’ve got to say.”
