Important information about The Surgery, Ashby.

There have been a number of changes at The Surgery following inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in July 2017. Our most recent communication with patients confirmed that we had secured temporary caretaking arrangements for The Surgery following Dr Dawes leaving the practice in February 2019.

The CCG has worked with The Surgery and local health care providers over the last two years to address the CQC findings and to try to identify a sustainable long-term solution for the practice. Given the challenges, the CCG has reviewed all options and following careful consideration has decided to close the practice and request that patients register with another GP / practice.

This approach will ensure patients will have access to stable and sustainable primary care services and continuity of care. Patients are being notified of this and are being advised to register at an alternative practice by 31st October 2019.  

We have not made this decision lightly and we fully understand that this decision may cause patients some concerns. The following sections set out what you need to do if you are registered at this practice and the support that is available.  


What do I need to do next?

If you are registered at The Surgery, Ashby, you will need to register with a new GP practice before Thursday 31st October 2019, to ensure continuity of access to a GP. Below is a list of GP practices surrounding The Surgery.

Some GP practices will only allow you to register with them if you live within their catchment area. Therefore, we advise you to register with a practice close to home. Please visit the website of the pratice you wish to register with or use the contact details below to check if you live within a practice’s catchment area.
