Elderly and infirm patients risk slipping and “breaking their necks” on metal sheeting covering the road to a Cricklewood health centre, says locals.
The panels have been placed on the walkway up to Cricklewood Walk-in Centre in Cricklewood Lane.
In wet weather, they become slippery, and one neighbour is calling on health chiefs to act promptly and remove them.

“There’s no clear walkway for pensioners and patients. I’ve seen better entrances to a building site.”

He added: “There’s a betting shop across the road and I’m surprised they aren’t taking bets on someone falling over and breaking their neck.”
