It is with a real sense of regret that I have to announce that Cholsey will not be getting a doctor.
The new Clinical Commissioning Group (the replacement for the PCT) came to visit us last Friday in the surgery area of the new Pavilion. It was fairly obvious that the decision had already been made as they told us that their policy is for medical services to expand on the Wallingford Surgery site.
I think, given the work that has gone in to this, that we have reached the end of the road and the village will remain without a doctor for the foreseeable future.
The surgery will now be let to a group of therapists including chiropractors and physiotherapists.
