Child Health Clinics Moving from Wapping Health Centre

Child health clinics are moving from Wapping Health Centre and from 7th January will be held at Ocean’s Children Centre and Wapping & Bigland Children’s Centre.

Notice spotted in Wapping Health Centre

Don’t Panic!

Parents are advised not to panic however as according to the GP Care Group baby clinics will still be held at the Wapping Group Practice in Wapping Lane.

Walk-in clinics are being moved to the Ocean and Bigland Children’s Centres and Health Visitors will still operate from the St. Peters Centre in Reardon Street.

A spokeperson for the GP Care Group said that a more detailed statement would be issued later in the week. When we get it we will update this page.

Petition to stop Child Health Clinic move

However, a lot of Wapping parents are more than a little upset that after 30 years serving the children of E1W that the Child Health Clinic is being moved and have started a petition which you can see and sign here. 

“This decision appears to have been taken without consulting Wapping residents and represents a continuation of their efforts to chip away at public services in our area,” said Tim Boler who started the petition.

Many thanks to the eagle-eyed resident who spotted the notice and told the Wapping Mole!
