As announced previously, forthcoming changes to Bridlington General Practice will see three GP practices: Field House Surgery, Practice One and Wolds View cease to operate from 31 March 2023 with all patients being safely transferred over to Drs Reddy & Nunn over the coming months.
Dr Priya Reddy, Bridlington Primary Care Network (PCN) Clinical Director and Partner at Drs Reddy & Nunn said: “The transfer of patients will be carried out in a phased way to ensure everyone is handed over in a safe and secure manner. I would like to reassure patients that you do not have to do anything, everyone will automatically transfer across, and no one will be missed, and everyone affected will receive a letter confirming arrangements.”
The first practice to officially transfer across is Practice One and this will take place on 10 January 2023. As both practices have already been working closely together under the single clinical leadership of Drs Reddy & Nunn, most patients will experience minimal change. The transfer of patients who are registered with Wolds View and Field House Surgery, will take place before the end of March 2023. Planning work is well underway, and the dates will be announced in the New Year.
The transfer of patients registered with Wolds View and Field House Surgery will take place before the end of March.
Dr Reddy continued: “We would like to reassure all our patients, current and future, that plans are progressing well, and everyone will benefit from the strength and stability of being part of a larger, single practice group. All patients who are directly impacted by these changes will receive a letter from us shortly before each transfer takes place to confirm the arrangements for them.”
To help explain these changes and to further reassure patients, Bridlington Primary Care Network (PCN) is also hosting a second drop-in event on Thursday 19 January 2023 from 4:30pm to 7:00pm in the Sessions Room at Bridlington Spa, South Marine Drive, Bridlington YO15 3JH. People are welcome to pop in at any time during the session.
Dr Priya Reddy continues: “The drop-in event will follow the same format as the last event in November which was very successful and gave people the chance to come along, talk to myself and NHS colleagues, ask questions and raise concerns. We hope that holding this event in the early evening will allow those people who can’t attend during the day, the opportunity to come along.
“I would like everyone who attends the event to go away feeling reassured and supported throughout these changes.”
For people who cannot attend the event, information about the changes is already available online at Improving primary care services in Bridlington — East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group (eastridingofyorkshireccg.nhs.uk). These pages are regularly updated, so visiting frequently is recommended. Hard copies of all the information is also available in GP practices.
