Therese to Host Public Meeting on Walton Surgery

Therese has organised a public meeting to discuss the future of Walton Surgery after the Suffolk GP Federation handed back the contract. The surgery was saved back in 2016 when the GP Federation stepped in and took on the GP practice, but they are a private partnership that own the building and deliver services by contract to the NHS not NHS employees.

Therese said: “I share the concerns of local residents about the future of Walton Surgery following the news that the Suffolk GP Federation has decided to hand back the contract from July.”

“I’ve already been in touch with the Head of the Clinical Commissioning Group – who has agreed to a public meeting attended by Deputy Chief Operating Officer, David Brown and Head of Primary Care, Claire Pemberton to discuss solutions.”

The meeting will take place on Friday 21st February, from 5-6pm in the Felixstowe area. If you would like to attend please either email ( or phone (0207 219 7164) by midday on Wednesday the 19th February and the venue will be disclosed to registered constituents.
