Quick facts

  • This consultation is NOT about closing buildings
  • It is about PROPOSED CHANGES to urgent care services, which include:
    • No longer providing walk-in (urgent care) SERVICES in Houghton, Bunny Hill and Washington
    • Replacing these with appointments in our existing 40 GP practices and Sunderland Extended Access Service
    • An urgent treatment centre located at Pallion Health Centre
  • This consultation does NOT affect other services that are currently based in these buildings
  • Most people will be treated closer to home; and that this is part of a wider range of changes (Sunderland Extended Access Service, home visiting, enhanced NHS 111 and 42,000 extra GP appointments per year)
