List Closing Statement

The practice is applying to the CCG to close our patient list to new registrations for a 6 month period in order to safely serve the needs of our current patients.  Whilst this will not affect patients already registered with the practice, we welcome any comments or questions.

If the application is agreed the practice will still be able to accept immediate family members and new born babies of a registered patient, permanently living in the UK, at the same address.

Statement from the PPG group.

“Over the last months, we have seen a dramatic increase in demand to access GPs at our surgery. This is resulting in long waiting times to see a doctor, causing understanding worry and also frustration within the patient community. Lonsdale Medical Centre is currently running at full capacity and is unable to expand to meet the demand of even higher numbers of patients, so a temporary closure of lists is required in order to look after the existing patients safely.”
