The campaign, led by Keep our NHS Public (Sunderland and District), follows proposals from Sunderland Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to close three Urgent Care Centres in Sunderland, two of which are in Sharon’s constituency – Bunny Hill and Washington.

Speaking at the campaign launch, Sharon Hodgson MP said:

"It is great to see so many people protesting against the proposed closure of three urgent care centres in Sunderland, but sadly many people still do not even know the consultation is taking place.

I am encouraging my constituents to take part in the consultation, either during the public meetings or online, to ensure that their voices are heard and urging their friends and families to do the same.

Urgent care centres provide a vital service to our local communities, to close them is to take away a lifeline for people when they need it most."

Residents can participate in the consultation by attending public meetings or by completing an online survey. More information can be found at: http://www.sunderlandccg.nhs.uk/get-involved/urgent-care-services/public-consultation-get-involved
