Ellerdine Closure Posted on 4 Feb 2016

HODNET MEDICAL PRACTICE REQUEST

 FORMAL CLOSURE OF ELLERDINE BRANCH SURGERY 

The practice has formally applied to NHS England to close the Ellerdine surgery with effect from  1st April 2016.  The branch surgery has not actually functioned since March 2008.

To date, we have not been in a position to resume our previous service, but have continued to maintain a weekly drug delivery and repeat medication slip collection service.

Since the branch surgery closed in March 2008, the pressures of general practice have increased, and our resources are now stretched to a point where we feel unable to safely resume the previous level of service. 

We can offer our patients better capacity at Hodnet, with a larger physical presence, more consulting rooms and good clinical supervision, support and facilities. 

Delivery of repeat medication, and collection of repeat request slips will continue on Thursday mornings as at present. 

Thank you

Hodnet Medical Centre
