Closure Priors Field Surgery Sutton
CLOSURE OF PRIORS FIELD GP SURGERY on 31.3.2023
An announcement has been made that the GP Partners at Priors Field Surgery, who currently hold a contract to deliver services at Priors Field Surgery, are taking retirement from the practice and have served notice to terminate their contract.
The practice will close its doors when the contract ends on 31 March 2023.
Arrangements are in hand with NHS Cambridgeshire & Peterborough and NHS England to arrange for the patients of Priors Field Surgery to transfer to other local GP practices when the surgery closes. Ie others in the Fenland Group Practice and some for Haddenham and Ely. They are committed to ensuring all patients have access to high quality GP services and care in the future and will provide a smooth transition to patients’ new GP practice. But there are concerns for people who may have problems travelling to these new sites.
At this stage, patients do not need to take any further action. You will soon receive a letter confirming which local GP practice you have been allocated, and details about your transfer.
From now until your registration is complete you will continue to receive GP services from Priors Field Surgery in the same way as you do now.
Where a mobile phone number is held for you which allows the practice to send text messages to you, a text will be sent to confirm that your registration your new practice has been completed.
They appreciate patients may have some concerns about the closure and aim to address these through their Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), which can be found on the Fenland Group Practice website
Drop in sessions for Tuesday 7 March and Wednesday 8 March are planned. See surgery website for details or contact the surgery.
