JANE FREEMAN in her letter about the possible re-siting of the Wrington Surgery to Pudding Pie Lane, Langford, describes those who are against this as a 'vociferous tiny minority'. Vociferous we may be but a tiny minority we are not.

Wrington is one of the two main settlements covered by the practice and has had a surgery for more than 50 years.

To lose a service you have always had is worse than never having had it.

Janet asks for 'reasoned debate and informed opinion', but her main argument seems to be that, living in Sandford, she has always had to drive to the practice.

All you would do by moving the surgery out of Wrington would be to add another couple of thousand patients who would have to rely on transport. She and others would still have to drive to the new site!

The loss of the surgery would have a major impact on the old and on mothers and children. They are less likely to have access to cars and the bus service from Wrington to Langford (Budgens) is one an hour even before you undertake the walk to the surgery.
