Rumours that St Mark's Hospital seven day access clinic may be under threat are denied

Rumours the GP hub at St Mark's Hospital is under threat due to ‘lack of use’ have been quashed by a leading GP.

The service offers seven-day access to GP appointments and has been called a ‘highlight’ of healthcare in the borough.

Dr Adrian Hayter, governing body chairman of the Windsor and Maidenhead Clinical Commissioning Group said: “We’re looking at what the use has been and how the resources are accessed.

“We’ve found that evenings in the week are really popular as are Saturday mornings but the service is less popular on Sundays.

“We’re always revaluating the service to make sure we are not wasting tax payers’ money and make sure resources are being used appropriately.

“The service is funded by central government and we’re awaiting for news about the next round of funding.”
