Bromfield Medical Centre closed suddenly last week leaving around 2000 registered patients without their regular GP.
The reason for the closure is unknown, Betsi Cadwaldr said it was supporting staff at the practice “at this difficult time.”
Nearly 70 local residents have signed a petition calling for the Bromfield Medical Centre to be “saved”. The petition states:
“We do not want another Doctor! We want to be looked after by our Dr, Sekela Mwambingu.”
“We do not want another Nurse! We want to be looked after by our Nurse, Liz Mwambingu.”
Bromfield Medical Practice, situated off Wrexham Road is known locally as Dr Tom’s, it has been in existence since 1990 and is owned by Dr Sekela Mwambingu.
Patients can book GP and Nurse appointments over the telephone using the usual practice telephone number 01352 700212 between 8.00am and 6.30pm Monday to Friday.
“Patients attending for appointments are asked to notify the receptionist on the ground floor once they have arrived and then proceed to the first floor waiting area where they will be called through for their appointment.” A Betsi Cadwaldr spokesperson said.
Patients who need to see a doctor outside of regular opening hours can contact the North Wales GP Out of Hours Service on 0300 123 55 66.
