DMC Healthcare holds a contract to provide GP services at Iwade Health Centre. This ends on 31 March 2022.
We are now considering how GP services will be delivered in the future for patients registered with the practice after this date.
The contract, held by DMC Healthcare, has been extended a number of times in the past few years. With the contract due to expire at the end of March next year, we now need to make a longer-term commissioning decision.
We recognise how important it is to have a local GP practice in Iwade. We are committed to the future of this practice. All options we consider as part of this work will include a long-term replacement with like-for-like services at the health centre.
Engaging with patients and stakeholders
There are 5,916 patients registered at the practice. We wrote to all patients on Monday, 8 November to ask them to take part in an engagement process.
Patients will be able to tell us their views via:
- an online survey www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/IwadeHC open until 5pm, Wednesday,1 December
- paper surveys at the practice
- an online patient meeting on Thursday, 2 December, for further details and to book click here.
