Public consultation on the proposed closure of Wood Road Branch Surgery
For some time the practice has been experiencing difficulty in managing and sustaining the branch surgery in Wood Road, Tettenhall Wood. All our patients deserve a high quality healthcare service but for a number of reasons we feel unable to deliver the services we would like to from this branch. Therefore, we have made a request to NHS Wolverhampton Clinical Commissioning Group (WCCG) to close the Wood Road Branch Surgery.
For the Partners of Tettenhall Medical Practice the decision to request the closure of the branch surgery has not been taken lightly. Over the past twelve months, we have tried various solutions to keep the branch surgery open. However, the national shortage of GPs has led to difficulty in recruiting permanent doctors. In addition, provision of modern primary healthcare is becoming increasingly difficult and delivery on two sites is no longer sustainable. As GPs we are primarily concerned with the well-being of our patients. We believe that by centralising services on a single site at Lower Green Surgery, we will be able to offer a more flexible, efficient GP service with better access for our patients. We welcome your views.
A consultation will begin on Tuesday 7 May 2019 on the proposed closure of Wood Road Branch Surgery. The consultation will take place over 90 days which has now been extended and will close on Sunday 15th September 2019. You can take part by completing a short questionnaire to let us know your views.
