Proposed closure and relocation of the dispensary
The CCG is supporting the Gables Medical Practice to seek the views of their patients, the wider public and their stakeholders on the proposed closure of their branch surgery in Cambois and the relocation of the dispensary to their Bedlington site.
The practice has had to reduce clinical services over the past few months due to COVID-19 and as a result, the GP services at the Cambois branch, including the dispensary, temporarily moved to the main Gables site at Bedlington Station.
The surgery is now facing further challenges and is faced with having to consider the permanent closure of the branch and relocation of the Cambois dispensary to the Bedlington site.
We realise people may have some concerns about the potential closure of the practice and relocation of the dispensary. The practice has now entered a period of engagement for nine weeks, designed to give every local person the opportunity to share their views.
