New Osidge Health Clinic by the Summer

Following the funding withdrawal for the rebuild of the Health Clinic in Brunswick Park, which was destroyed by fire, your local Conservative Councillors continued to put pressure on NHS Barnet and have now agreed with the GPs that the existing building is beyond economic repair and will be replaced by a new, temporary but substantial building.

The two displaced practices will continue to reside in shared accommodation with other practices until the new building is available in the summer of 2011. The design of the new temporary facility will be undertaken in partnership with the GPs.

The Leader of Barnet Council and Brunswick Park Ward Councillor, Lynne Hillan, said, "Of course another temporary building is not ideal but it will give the GPs and their patients suitable accommodation for now. We will at some stage apply for further funding and take another look at our original proposals."
