Help Joy save the Walk-in Centre! (April 2014)
Help Joy save the Walk-in Centre! The NHS Walk-In Centre on Farrier Street is at risk of closure. It's an important part of healthcare for the people of Worcester, and would be very much missed.

You can join the campaign! Sign the petition, and find more details, at www.saveworcesterwalkin.co.uk ... you can help Joy's campaign to defend front-line NHS services in our City.
