    Default Speke super surgery plans expected to get green light

    A ?7m Merseyside ?super surgery? is expected to be approved next week.

    The new state of the art neighbourhood health centre ? which incorporates several GP surgeries with services like dentistry and chiropody ? is planned between North Parade and South Parade in Speke.

    Plans, which are recommended for approval by council officers, include a 20m high wind turbine and three buildings, linked together with glass to form a ?H? shape.

    Two objections have been received to the blueprint, which will go to Liverpool council?s planning committee on Tuesday.

    The surgery is part of a ?100m city- wide reorganisation of community healthcare, with around 25 neighbourhood centres planned.

    Derek Campbell, chief executive of Liverpool PCT, said: ?Securing planning permission will ensure we are a step closer to delivering even better services for Speke residents, in a state-of-the art health facility.

    ?The plans form part of Liverpool PCT?s wider plans for a New Health Service for Liverpool, which will see significant investment to enable enhanced services within communities as well as better facilities and equipment for patients.?

    Super surgeries have proved controversial because many claim they will erode the traditional relationship between patient and GP.

    The Speke surgery will open 8am-8pm Monday to Friday and 8am-6pm on Saturday.

    It will offer diagnostic testing, chiropody, dental and sexual health services and a pharmacy, amongst other things.

    The scheme aims to incorporate renewable energy sources through solar panels, ground source heat pumps and the wind turbine, which a local resident has objected to for noise and visual reasons.

    Merseyside Cycling Campaign has objected because of an issue surrounding cycle stands.

    A council report reads: ?The proposed development would improve the delivery of health services in the city and would be in accordance with relevant planning policies and recommends that planning permission be granted.?

    Watch out privatisation of the NHS is about. These super clinics are run for profit by a private company. This includes forming joint limited companies with GPs.

    The bit about dentistry is interesting.

    Default Privatisation at work

    Agreed !!! There are of course already a number of these super clinics in Liverpool. For example the new one in Earle Rd, Edge Hill. Whilst heavily branded with the NHS logo, they are in fact built and largely owned by a private company, Assura. This company is registered off shore in Guernsey presumably for tax reasons.

    Registered in Guernsey: Number 41230
    Registered office: 2nd Floor, Albert House, South Esplanade, St Peter Port, Guernsey GY1 3TX

    This is the GP set up

    http://www.assuragroup.co.uk/medical.aspx

    The people of Garston are going to get the same set up when their hospital is demolished and replaced by a uninspiring new structure.
