111 Health Centre visit
Croydon Clinical Commissioning Group (CCCG) had invited the PWRA and other local residents associations to visit the 111 NHS medical call centre in Hayes and Harlington. As the new urgent care provisions for Purley Hospital would be dependent on the 111 service, this invitation was welcomed.
However, it seemed that it was very difficult to get a date from the 111 service and then the number of people who could attend was reduced to 4 – and then further reduced so that only one invitation would be extended so that just one person would have to represent all local RAs).
Purley Baptist Church
It was reported that the formal planning application for this scheme had been delayed from the end of February and that the new target submission date was the end of April. There had been a slight increase in the number of social housing units – and hence a similar increase in the number of private units).
Any other business
The Chairman reported that the new Purley Business Improvement District is now very proactive – with its attention including signage, parking, cleaning, green audits, improving Purley’s image and the possibility of a May food and drink festival.
The matter of 20mph speed limits, now being progressively introduced in Croydon and expected to reach Purley soon, was also discussed.
