Consultation regarding the future of services for registered patients of Narborough Health Centre

11/08/2017

East Leicestershire and Rutland CCG are conducting a 12 week consultation on the future of GP services for patients registered at Narborough Health Centre, Thornton Drive, Narborough, Leicester, LE19 2GX.

The consultation follows a request by Dr Kapur to cease offering primary care services from Narborough Health Centre, and amend the status of the branch location at Narborough Road to the main site and subsequently close Narborough Health Centre; this would also involve a change of CCG member from East Leicestershire and Rutland to Leicester City CCG.

The option being considered for the future of primary care services for patients registered at the practice is:

Patient’s options

Patients will have the choice of remaining registered with Dr Kapur but would need to travel to the Narborough Road site for treatment or they can choose to register at a new GP practice.

There are a number of GP practices in the area, with the capacity to take on additional patents. Patients do not have to choose a practice in Narborough area but do need to live within the boundary of their preferred practice. Help in finding and registering with a new practice will be available from ELRCCG.

A letter explaining the consultation and options has been sent to patients registered at Narborough Health Centre along with a survey to enable people to share their views. An online version of the survey is also available for patients with translations and an easy-read version available on request.

The practice will be holding six drop in sessions four at Narborough Health Centre, Thornton Drive, Narborough, Leicester, LE19 2GX, and two at 193 Narborough Road, Leicester LE3 0PE to answer any questions people may have. The drop in sessions will be held on:

  • Wednesday 6 September 2017 from 11.30am to 12.30pm Narborough Health Centre
  • Friday 8 September 2017 from 5.30pm to 6.30pm 193 Narborough Road
  • Wednesday 13 September 2017 from 11.30am-12.30pm Narborough Health Centre
  • Wednesday 20 September 2017 from 5.30pm-6.30pm 193 Narborough Road
  • Friday 29 September 2017 from 4.30pm-5.30pm Narborough Health Centre
  • Friday 13 October 2017 from 4.30pm-5.30pm Narborough Health Centre

Your views on the options for the future of services for patients at Narborough Health Centre are welcomed.
