The Meadows Medical Practice - Clun & Knighton
PRIMARY CARE IN CRISIS - UPDATE 23 August 2016
A new taskforce between local practices and NHS bodies is developing updated proposals for GP primary care services in the Knighton and Clun area.
Dr Juliet Bennett from the Meadows said "We have been so grateful for the support from our patients. We've heard a clear recognition of the challenges facing primary care but we've also heard anxiety about potential changes to the way local GP services are delivered. Our taskforce, in partnership with practices and NHS bodies on both sides of the border, will develop updated proposals for local services."
Dr Martin Kiff from Wylcwm Street Surgery said: "With the first meeting of our local taskforce having recently taken place we're confident that together with colleagues at the Meadows we can develop new plans that continue to keep the needs and safety of patients and communities on both sides of the border at their heart. We expect updated plans to be developed by mid-September."
The first primary care taskforce meeting took place on 19 August with representatives from the Meadows Surgery, Wylcwm Street Surgery, Presteigne Surgery, Powys Teaching health Board and NHS England (also representing Shropshire Clinical Commissioning Group). Taskforce members are developing updated proposals for maintaining GP primary care services in the Knighton and Clun area and expect to conclude this work shortly.
In the mean time patients are encouraged to remain registered with their current practice.
