The future of New Chapel Surgery, Long Crendon

Closed 23 Nov 2020

Opened 21 Aug 2020

Overview

Unity Health is asking patients to share their views on the future of New Chapel Surgery in Long Crendon, Buckinghamshire.

New Chapel Surgery in Long Crendon was temporarily closed at the start of the coronavirus outbreak in March. This was done in the interests of patient and staff safety, as the layout of the building made social distancing and managing the risk of infection virtually impossible.

This situation has highlighted the fact that the Long Crendon surgery is really no longer suitable for the needs of a modern GP practice. The ageing building, which has no car parking facilities and poor disabled access, cannot be expanded or redeveloped to adequate standards. It is no longer possible to safely offer the level of service to patients that we would wish to as a modern, innovative GP Practice

As a result of these considerations, Unity Health, which operates this site,  now believes the best course of action is to permanently close the Long Crendon surgery. We hope to apply to NHS Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group, which is responsible for commissioning all GP services in Bucks, to close the surgery later this year, but it is vital that we first understand the views and needs of our patients to ensure any future proposals take these into account.

We would be very grateful if you could please take part in this survey to help us.
