Now the good news! I received a telephone call Monday to confirm that the Phlebotomy clinic on Ashmore Park would stay open. After all the activity, and the difficulty in finding out who was actually making decisions, an answer!
I requested that they provide me with that information in a written form. This is it folks! “the phlebotomy service at Ashmore is going to stay open and will be reviewed again in three months. Richard Radcliffe, Head of Communications, Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust.
“Now this is a breathing space, nothing more. I will be campaigning to ensure that proper consideration is given to patients. That its good well thought out communications are provided to patients…..and yes I have signed the Petition in the Doctors surgery….No we don’t want any more Scruffy Notices with no information on them!
But nevertheless it is a little victory of a sort. I will be contacting RWT to find out what the future holds for the clinic. I am very keen to hear your views. I know that the Ashmore Park Medical Centre and the other Doctors Surgery on Ashmore Park are keen to see it continue here.
