Staines Thameside Practice to close on 31 August 2019
Due to personal circumstances the doctors at Staines Thameside have decided to end their contract with the NHS to provide GP services with effect from 31 August 2019. This means that the practice will be closing and will no longer see any patients after 31 August.
NHS North West Surrey Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the organisation responsible for making sure local people can use GP services, is working closely with the practice and will support all patients to find an alternative service.
This means you will need to register with a different GP practice to make sure you can continue to see a doctor when you need one. The following registration drop-in sessions will run at Staines Thameside Practice. You are invited to come to talk to the team and get advice and support with registration:
- Thursday 11 July 2019 – 09:30 – 12:00
- Thursday 18 July 2019 – 12:00 – 14:30
- Thursday 25 July 2019 – 14:30 – 17:00
- Wednesday 7 August - 16:30 – 19:00
All patients are strongly encouraged to register with an alternative practice as soon as you are able to. This will ensure that you can continue to use GP services and that you continue to receive invitations and reminders for important health screening programmes.
The CCG is also working closely with other local practices to understand where there is availability and will be trying to give you as much choice as possible.
