Thank you to everyone who completed the survey and attended the online meeting that we held in June about our proposal to close the branch surgery at Long Causeway, Adel. All your feedback was included as part of our application to NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group
The CCG’s Primary Care Commissioning Committee approved our application and the branch surgery will formally close on 31 March 2021. From this date, all our patients will receive services from our main site at Alwoodley Medical Centre, as well as telephone, online and video consultations.
The committee had a lengthy discussion, including about changes in general practice that have resulted from the coronavirus pandemic, and how that has transformed the way patients access services by using more online and video consultations. However, the committee did recognise that the closure would have a greater impact on some of our patients and have advised that there should be a robust and sustainable transport solution to support these patients to access the main site which the practice will work collaboratively with the CCG to establish. The committee also advised us that we should continue to work with the local community pharmacy.
We’d like to thank you for the really positive comments about your care and the services we offer, and we hope that you will want to stay registered with our practice beyond 31 March 2021. However, should you wish to register with another practice, please access https://www.nhs.uk/service-search/find-a-gp to review practices in the local area.
