Stop plans to close Clacton on Sea's Minor Injuries Unit

North East Essex CCG are trying to shut down the Minor Injuries Unit which is situated at Clacton Hospital. This would mean that patients wanting to see a doctor, or needing urgent medical care, would have to travel to Colchester.


Clacton's population is increasing and health services in the town are already suffering. GPs surgeries are not able to cope with their workload now, it is unthinkable that we may now lose the valuable service that our Minor Injuries Unit provides.

This area has a large elderly population along with a large percentage of vulnerable people with mental health issues. It is not acceptable that elderly and vulnerable people have to travel to Colchester.

Many people do not have their own transport and would not be able to afford to take public transport to Colchester to see a doctor.

We have to stop this closure!

This petition has been launched by TenPAG, Tendring Pensioners Action Group and has the support of Clacton Labour Party
