A walk-in centre that looked set for closure is to remain open following a patient-led campaign.

Harrow Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) confirmed last week that walk-in services at the Pinn Medical Centre, in Love Lane, would be maintained.

It comes following interventions from patients who use the surgery, as well as support from politicians.

Joanne Daswani, chairman of the Pinn Medical Centre Patients’ Association, said: “The trustees are pleased that the CCG has agreed to maintain the provision of walk in services for all patients.

“We await with great interest the outcome of future discussions between the CCG and the partners on the key issues relating to the future funding of the walk-in centre which are yet to be negotiated.

“We wish to thank all our supporters, particularly David Simmonds, Lord Daniel Finkelstein, Nick Hurd and Gareth Thomas, all whom have worked tirelessly in support of our campaign for keeping this very valuable service open for all patients in Harrow and surrounding boroughs.”

The CCG planned to transfer the walk-in services at the Pinn to an appointment-only system, following similar transitions at the Alexandra Avenue and Belmont Health Centres.

But concerns raised by patients who “rely” on these services means they will continue to operate in Pinner for the foreseeable future.

A spokesman for the CCG said: “We have been discussing the future of the walk-in services at the Pinn Medical Centre with patients over the last few months.

“Having considered the feedback we have received; we can confirm that we will be working with the Pinn Medical Centre to maintain the provision of walk in services for all patients at the site.”

Mr Simmons, MP for Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner, said he was “delighted” with the announcement, describing it as “a win for patients and the community”.

“This follows hard work on the part of the practice and local campaigners, and very useful input from health secretary Matt Hancock following lots of discussions,” he said.
