Castlecliff Health left outraged at nowhere to go
Castlecliff Health medical centre may be forced to close within a year if they cannot go ahead with planned expansion.
The owner said Whanganui District Council (WDC) are making this impossible.
Castlecliff Health owner and general practitioner (GP) Praveen Thadigiri said due to a high patient demand and new Government regulations they are in desperate need for a revamp.
Dr Thadigiri bought the business in 2014 from Te Waipuna Medical Centre, who shifted into the city centre. Since then patient numbers have risen from 1200 to 2400 with 86 per cent of those patients in high need.
