Update on Daneshouse Medical Centre - 4 March 2019

Since the closure of Daneshouse Medical Centre on the 22 August 2018, GP services have continued to be provided to patients who are registered with Daneshouse from Colne Road Surgery, 36 Colne Road, Burnley. This was a short term plan while we thought about the longer term future of GP services for the Daneshouse area and we would like to express our thanks to all the staff at Colne Road for their support under challenging circumstances.

Since this time, the CCG has been considering what should happen next, for those patients who have been affected. In order to help us better understand the health needs and views of local people we have worked in close collaboration with Lancashire BME Network and local community researchers to seek the views of patients registered with Daneshouse. The report of this engagement has been considered by the CCG as part of this review.  We are very grateful and would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated in the community engagement. We have listened to the views that were expressed and they have informed our plans.

People told us that they would rather we procured a new contract instead of dispersing the list of patients.  A procurement is now underway to ensure that local people have the services that best meet their needs and to encourage innovative approaches to working in this vibrant area.  No action is needed from anyone affected as the CCG will communicate next steps across the next few weeks.
