Fighting for St Marks Hospital

Josh Reynolds and the local Lib Dems are campaigning to get our Urgent Care Centre back

Local health campaigner Josh Reynolds is continuing his mission to support the NHS. “Our NHS is under so much pressure, and its hardworking staff have been let down. They need the support of their MP to deal with the growing demands for their help,” said Josh.

“Waiting times to see a GP are going up and with all the new dwellings being built that were approved by the previous Conservative council, more GPs are desperately needed here.

“As a councillor, I am making sure that the Borough is working closely with the NHS to provide a new NHS GP hub, but sadly the Government is refusing to fund it. I am continuing my campaign to further improve the offer at St Marks Hospital. I am glad to see same-day appointments and improved telephone access now being offered at the Urgent Care Centre, but I am still campaigning to see a walk-in reintroduced.”

“I am also backing the Liberal Democrat campaign calling for the recruitment of 8,000 new GPs to help reduce waiting times. “We need an MP who will fight for the improvements that are so desperately needed.”

20 years ago Lib Dems successfully campaigned for a Minor Injuries Unit at St Marks. Here we are presenting a petition to the NHS

Twenty-five years ago the local Lib Dems battled to bring the Urgent Care Centre to Maidenhead and will continue to fight hard now to keep it.

Also, in the Borough Local Plan, NHS Property Services has proposed selling off part of St Marks Hospital site to be turned into flats leaving serious questions about the viability of the hospital.

Responding to concerns raised by several residents, local Liberal Democrats made a Freedom of Information Request to the NHS body responsible for the Centre. This revealed that a consultation may soon be launched into proposals to make the closure permanent.
