A POPULAR Shirley surgery received a boost to plans to extend and modernise its facilities when councillors, politicians and residents turned out to support the handover of a petition to Solihull Council this week.
The 7,000 patients at Haslucks Surgery in Haslucks Green Road can look forward to state of the art facilities if planning permission for the modernisation and extension is granted on November 5 at a planning sub-committee meeting.
Partner, Dr Kumud Dunn, said: "We are very grateful for the massive support we have received from the community. I would like to thank everyone who has added their name to our petition, already running into thousands and the many letters of support and encouragement. We hoped we had achieved a reputation in Shirley for patient care and the level of support we have received is a real testament to our work."
