Drop in session for patients at Centre Surgery

Drop in session for patients at Centre Surgery

7th December 2016

West Leicestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is offering people a chance to speak directly to commissioners about the future of Centre Surgery in Hinckley and Bosworth.

The CCG has started a process to ensure that GP services are maintained in The Centre Surgery in Hinckley, following communication from the current GPs that they will end their contract to provide GP care at the end of March 2017.

The drop – in will be held on Wednesday 14 December 2016 at Hinckley Leisure Centre, Argents Mead, Hinckley. Members of staff from the CCG will be available from 8AM until 8PM. Anyone registered at the Centre Surgery can drop in at any point in the day either individually or as a family, and talk to staff from the CCG about any concerns they may have.

Angela Bright, Chief Operating Officer, West Leicestershire CCG said: “We are inviting all patients to come along to our drop in session and raise any concerns they may have around the next steps and the long-term future of the practice.

We welcome anyone who wants to come and talk to us so that we can understand what matters most to you”

While Dr Solanki and Dr Bagga have decided to end their contract to provide GP care it is important for patients to know that they can continue to use the practice as normal, even after the current contract has ended, as they will still receive care from doctors, nurses and other health professionals from the surgery.

If patients have any questions or are worried and cannot attend the drop in event they should call the NHS Customer Contact Centre on 0300 311 2233 or email england.contactus@nhs.uk
