We would also like your views on the future of General Practice and how we can maintain our service to you.
Across the country many surgeries (especailly the smaller ones) are in danger of closure owing to financial pressures. This could lead to the wholesale replacement of traditional surgeries with private sector NHS clinics. We and some other local GP practices believe that it is essential for us to seek ways to co-operate / combine so as to maintain or improve the range and quality of our services affordably while keeping the individual character of our different surgeries (as opposed to moving to large-scale 'super-surgeries'). We hope that we have the support of you, the patients, in our efforts and would invite you to comment below.
