Cardiff Road Branch Surgery Announcement.

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ALL PATIENTS

It is with great regret that we have to inform you that Cardiff Road Branch Surgery will begin a phased closure in July 2015 before closing fully on 31st January 2016. The background to this difficult decision is that the building has become outdated and no longer meets current Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulations for performing general medical services.  Cardiff Road Surgery will close on a Wednesday from 1st July 2015 followed by closing Fridays from 1st September with full closure on 31st January 2016.

Additionally, despite extensive efforts, we have been unable to recruit a new GP for over a year, and providing services over two sites with only three GPs has become increasingly difficult.  We understand this news could be upsetting for some patients and we are working hard to minimise any disruption this may cause.

We would like to add that this has been a difficult situation for the partners and staff of the practice to deal with, and can assure you that every avenue has been explored to try and keep the surgery open. We understand the closure may be distressing to patients who have been with us for many years, but we will do our best to help during the transition.

If you have and queries or concerns about the closure, please feel free to contact us at the practice.
