Sad and tragic event. I heard about it on the radio this morning. Thankfully there are no beds there now. It's the impact on the elderly/vulnerable who can't reach a local GP that will hurt the most. If building had been in use maybe fire would of been spotted sooner? Thankfully no one was hurt. It's ironic the comments about the FBU budget not being increased and then this happens. Albeit the FBU do attend more non fire emergencies these days. Accidents etc.

Have to see where this walk in centre/hospital goes now. Having to travel to Ashford or Woking is not great. Could take years to rebuild this. They may opt to move it? If they do I can see Aldi watching this site very closely. See what happens.
