REDCLIFFE GP SURGERY CLOSING
There has been concern expressed about the proposed closure and relocation of the Redcliffe Surgery, which is one of the larger GP practices in the borough.
The commercial lease of the premises of the GP practice is due to expire and the lease will not be renewed, therefore the practice will have to find another location at some point within two years. The building is not really fit for modern day requirements and the layout of the building itself presents challenges. The practice has confirmed it will consult patients.
The Earl’s Court area is one of the most populated in the borough, whose public has diverse medical demands. It is suggested that all existing patients would be accepted at Violet Melchett Heath Centre at 30 Flood Street. But to get there may require a bus change either way, or tube then bus. Councillor Linda Wade has raised the issue of the list of GPs provided last year, which could be offered as alternatives, some were out of borough, some were private, some although on the list were declining patient registration from SW5 and some were already at capacity.
We will keep you posted but in the meantime, Linda Wade has offered to receive any comments on “how you would like to see GP provision in the area” firstname.lastname@example.org.
