Ketton Surgery to close

  • Aug 16, 2018

This week it was announced that Ketton Surgery will be closing. Many of you will recall that this was consulted upon earlier this year, following which Uppingham Surgery, with the agreement of the East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), have now taken the decision to close the Ketton branch.

Having raised my own concerns, as well as those I received from constituents, with both Uppingham Surgery and the CCG, I am naturally disappointed by this outcome. However, as detailed in their recent statement, Ketton Surgery has been suffering from high numbers of unused GP and nurse appointment slots recently, among other issues, and felt changes were necessary in order to meet the needs of patients across the practice more widely.

Though the decision was taken in the best interests of its patients, there is no denying that for some elderly or vulnerable constituents this may cause difficulties. For those who will be affected, I would suggest that you contact the surgery in the first instance to discuss your concerns, and I would of course be very happy to take the matter up myself if you need any further assistance. I will be also writing to Uppingham Surgery to ask for further details about their plan for a smooth transition for patients at Ketton.
