Warren Farm Urgent Care Centre is a vital healthcare facility for the people of Kingstanding. It offers a range of services, such as advice and treatment for illnesses and minor injuries, as well as a 111-appointment based service for patients. However, the centre is at risk of closure due to the presence of RAAC, a dangerous type of concrete that can collapse with little or no notice.
Many local facilities have been affected by the RAAC problem, and some have had to shut down or undergo emergency repairs. This has disrupted the provision of essential services and caused inconvenience and distress to the residents. The government has ordered schools to immediately shut buildings made with RAAC until safety work is undertaken, but there is no clear plan or funding for other public buildings.
As the local Member of Parliament, Paulette has urged the Minister to take urgent action to solve the RAAC problem and ensure that people can get the care they need. Paulette firmly believes that the government has a duty to protect the public and invest in our infrastructure. We cannot afford to lose our vital services or put lives at risk.
