Cambuslang Community Council members registered strong objections to the NHS Lanarkshire consultation on the future of the out of hours service. NHS Lanarkshire is currently proposing either: one primary care out-of-hours centre at Douglas Street Community Health Clinic in Hamilton; or two primary care out-of-hours centres one of which would be in Airdrie Community Health Centre and the other in Douglas Street Community Health Clinic, Hamilton. At the Community Council meeting on 17 March,  members emphasised that neither of the proposals – for one centre or two centres – is appropriate for people in Cambuslang given the difficulties of getting to Hamilton out of hours. Further, members were highly critical of the way that the proposals were developed, with limited publicity having been given, and the narrow remit of the current consultation. The consultation survey only allows respondents to select one of the two options. CCC is recommending that Cambuslang residents write directly to NHS Lanarkshire to register their objections, either by email to or by writing to FREEPOST RTEJ-HZLK-AETZ, NHS Lanarkshire, Kirklands, Fallside Road, Bothwell, GLASGOW, G71 8BB.
