Next steps for Brownhill Surgery patients

Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to agree next steps for Brownhill Surgery patients 

Members of West Hampshire CCG’s Primary Care Commissioning Committee will (17 August 2017) agree the next steps for the 7,000 patients registered at Brownhill Surgery.

Last month the CCG confirmed the partners at Brownhill had given notice to end their contract to provide general medical services on 30 November 2017.

The CCG has met with around 500 people and received 1650 responses to its survey – 66% of which were on behalf of families – to find out patients’ views on transferring to a new practice.

The results of the consultation showed 88 per cent of patients wanted to choose a new GP practice.

The committee will be asked to approve the following:

  • To enable people to choose to re-register with a practice of their choice (based on the feedback from the survey). This option is formally known as ‘list dispersal’
  • To ratify the financial support packages agreed with Brownhill Surgery and local practices under the urgent decision making process, as summarised in the paper
  • To approve the process and timescales for the re-registration of patients of Brownhill Surgery.

The meeting, which is open to the public, is on Thursday 17 August 2017 from 2-3pm at The Hilt, Hiltingbury Recreation Ground, Hiltingbury Road, Chandlers Ford SO53 5NP.
