Local Burnley GP Practices step in to welcome patients from the former Daneshouse GP Surgery
From 1st October 2019, patients of the former Daneshouse Surgery, who are currently being cared for by Burnley Group Practice, will be welcomed into surrounding local practices.
Burnley Group Practice stepped up to help when the Daneshouse contract ended, but since then many patients have chosen to move to surgeries closer to home. Now several other Burnley practices have come forward to accommodate the remaining patients.
Affected patients have all been allocated a new GP at another practice and will see no disruption to their care. Patients who have already chosen to register formally with Burnley Group Practice will not be affected.
From 1 October 2019, patients will be able to contact their new practice to make appointments and order repeat prescriptions. All medical records will be transferred automatically safely and securely.
Dr Mark Dziobon, Burnley GP, and medical director for NHS East Lancashire CCG said: "GP services are the cornerstone of the NHS and we value them deeply. I am heartened to see local practices stepping up to provide services for individuals and families in Burnley East. This transition will be done in a careful, managed way so that everyone can continue to receive safe, high quality GP services”.
NHS East Lancashire has written to every affected patient and allocated them to their nearest neighbouring GP practice. Patients do not need to do anything and will be able to access a health care professional should they need one.
Should patients wish to register at another GP Practice they can do so. Information about this is available on our frequently asked questions below.
The CCG will be monitoring the situation carefully, and ensuring that all patients are supported in the transfer. Alongside this, the CCG has arranged with the local community for patient information sessions in the Daneshouse should patients have any further questions or queries.
