Plans to relocate a health centre have been branded disgusting.
Yiewsley Health Centre, in the high street, has been ear-marked for redevelopment for several years.
Last month Hillingdon PCT held a consultation day with residents, at the Methodist Church in Fairfield Road, Yiewsley, to discuss the future of the centre including developing facilities and changing its location.
But the PCT has announced the centre will move to Hayes as part of the Government's demands to provide 'GP-led' health centres in all boroughs.
A spokeswoman said: "The PCT's plan was to look to provide these services within the Yiewsley area. Unfortunately, the Department of Health has recently confirmed that our proposals did not meet their criteria.
"As a consequence, we are now progressing with plans to deliver this project through the tendering of an existing GP practice, which has recently fallen vacant in a relatively deprived part of the borough."
Carl Nielsen, treasurer of the Yiewsley and West Drayton Town Centre Action Group, told the Gazette of being 'completely and utterly bewildered' by the decision.
He said: "In the last 10 years we've waited patiently for this new health centre to arrive.
"We just don't understand it; we thought we had a breakthrough but apparently we're getting nothing."
The group will meet PCT officials to discuss the decision today (Wednesday).
Leader of the Liberal Democrat Group, Councillor Mike Cox, said: "It's pretty disgusting and they need to think again. All we can do is to lobby and say this is ridiculous.
"There's an urgent need for this and, with all the development in Yiewsley, it's needed more so than ever."
Contracts are expected to be signed by March with services running from the practice in Elers Road, Hayes, shortly afterwards.
The PCT said they were exploring funding to finance a new health centre in Yiewsley within the next two years.
However Mr Nielsen added: "I still don't understand why Yiewsley didn't meet the criteria but Hayes does. I would have thought we were deserving of extra facilities.
"We are extremely disappointed and waiting for an explanation."
