CENTRAL and Eastern Cheshire Primary Care Trust plans to move Knutsford’s three GPs’ surgeries - Toft Road, Manchester Road and Annandale - under one roof at a new medical centre in Shaw Heath.
It would also close the Annandale branch in Mobberley, shut the Community Hospital and create more beds at the new location near the junction with Longridge and Mobberley Road.
Officials say more services such as scans and clinics would then be available at the modern medical centre in Knutsford and fewer patients would have to travel miles to Macclesfield and other hospitals.
But some residents have raised concerns about the new medical centre’s location and cost, as well as the future of Knutsford’s waste tip on the Shaw Heath site.
