NHS Nene Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS England are seeking a new provider of services at Kings Heath Practice following the current provider deciding to serve notice to terminate its contract.
After 30 August, the current provider, GP Alliance, will no longer be responsible for providing primary care services at the practice.
Julie Curtis, Director of Primary and Community Integration for Nene CCG said: “The surgery will remain open and patients will still be able to access the full range of primary care services as normal. We have written to patients to advise and assure them we are actively exploring a number of options to ensure they will still be able to continue accessing safe, high quality GP services.
“Over the coming weeks, we will be engaging with patients to ensure their views, and the needs of the local population, are taken into account.”Di Pegg, Head of Primary Care for NHS England in Northamptonshire, said: “The new provider of services will be appointed by NHS England and NHS Nene Clinical Commissioning Group, who are jointly responsible for commissioning GP services in the area. We will ensure patients are informed throughout this process.”
Along with all other patients in Northamptonshire, those registered at Kings Heath Practice can also book GP appointments via the county's extended access service if they need one. Appointments are available on Bank Holidays, the evenings and at weekends, and patients can book these through their own GP practice – or by ringing NHS 111.
