The two open sessions at Winton Health Centre took place this week with registered patients calling in to find out more about the upcoming closure and speak with team members from the practices they will be registered with from the end of July.

The Bournemouth Echo and Greatest Hits Radio were also in attendance, interviewing staff and patients to get their thoughts on the closure.

John Morton-Hicks, a resident of Bearwood who attended Wednesday’s event said, “It’s been fantastic to have my questions answered tonight. I am sad to see them go. They’ve been amazing to me. The staff are so courteous and helpful. I have found this useful though, thank you. The staff have been as pleasant as ever.”
