Southgate Road Medical Centre/ Whiston Road Branch Closure – Patient Engagement Sessions

The above practice will be permanently closing on 31 March 2022.

For very many years, the practice has been run by three GP partners: Drs Tahalani, Kumar and Sabharwal. Dr Sabharwal has not been practicing medicine for the last couple of years. In October 2021, Dr Tahalani and Dr Kumar handed their NHS contract back to the NHS, thereby dissolving their partnership.

Subsequently, local NHS commissioners asked The Lawson practice to step in and run the practice on an emergency caretaking basis. Given there are 21 other practices within a mile of the practice, local commissioners decided closure of the practice was the only truly viable option.

As just stated, there are 21 GP practices within one-mile of the practice, all of which are accepting new patients. You should register with one of these practices as soon as practically possible and certainly no later than 31 March 2022. The details of how to do this were included in the letter you have received.

There will be an opportunity for you to attend a meeting to learn more about what is happening and to ask any questions. The virtual meetings will take place on the following date and times:

Tues, 14 Dec. 2021 at 12:30PM – Register in advance

Tues, 14 Dec. 2021 at 5:00PM – Register in advance

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. We look forward to seeing you.
