Health Centre Revisted, A

Synopsis
In 1973 a television programme about the new health centre at Walton-on-Thames looked at both the advantages and disadvantages of housing several practices under one roof from the doctors’ and the patients’ point of view. This programme returns to Walton six years later after the reorganisation of the health services, to discover what changes have been made, how enthusiasm or scepticism has altered, and if the whole concept of the health centre is effective. The recording starts with a tour of the centre, looking at its layout, staffing, and the practice, health education and administrative facilities. Interviews with a number of the centre’s staff follow, giving different points of view about working in and running a health centre.
