The doctors surgeries servicing the area are overstretched currently and there is a shortage of GP’s locally.
We were pleased to see an objection to the planning application be submitted by the Saltdean and Rottingdean Medical Practice.
Extract from the Late Submissions List:
“Saltdean and Rottingdean Medical Practice object on the grounds that the proposal would cause considerable impact on the local medical facilities given thatthe proposed care home would house 62 elderly and infirm patients with a focus ondementia. Are the only GPs in the village and unless there is a private provision of medical care it is assumed that practice will be expected to take on the entirepopulation of the proposed care home as patients at the practice. Have considerable difficulties managing current workload with existing practice list and there are noadditional doctors willing to joining practices as a partner to reduce workload.”
