Darnall Community Meeting with NHS Bosses

Local residents of Darnall, working through the community forum, have come together with the three Darnall councillors and their MP, Clive Betts, to set up a meeting with senior managers from the Sheffield Primary Care Trust about the proposals for new community health services in Darnall.

The meeting will take place on Tuesday 6 January in the Darnall Forum Community Learning Centre, which is at 245 Main Road in Darnall Centre, and will begin at 6pm.

Clive Betts said: “The people of Darnall deserve health facilities fit for the 21st century and which are easily accessible by all. It’s important that what is provided really meets the needs of people in the area, so come along and put your point of view."

Councillor Mazher Iqbal said: 'This project will serve people's health needs in Darnall for many years to come. It's important that we get it right, so I would encourage everyone to come, ask questions and have their say.'

Chair of Darnall Forum, Sylvia Hamilton, said: 'This development is long overdue, both for the people of Darnall and the health providers in the area - so let's work together to make it happen.'
