Save Marske Medical Centre

The private provider running Marske Medical Centre went into administration in March 2016, citing a lack of GPs and the need to rely on expensive locum doctors.

South Tees NHS have made several attempts at finding new providers or local GPs to run the centre but all have failed.

It has now been announced that the centre will close at the end of June 2017, leaving 5100 patients looking for a new doctor.

Anna Turley has written to Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, asking him to step in to protect local GP services. She is urging residents to add their voice to that call by signing this petition:


To Jeremy Hunt MP, Secretary of State for Health

We, the undersigned, urge you to do everything you can to keep the Medical Centre Hall Close, Marske-by-the-Sea Cleveland open, the decision to close the centre leaves 5100 patients now looking for a space at other local practices which are themselves overstretched. The villages of Marske and New Marske have an increasingly ageing population with a third over the age of sixty. Many of the patients who rely on receiving regular care from the centre are elderly and vulnerable. It is not acceptable that they could now have to travel to neighbouring towns Redcar or Saltburn to see their GP.

Goal: 48 signatures
