You will probably be aware that Woolsthorpe Surgery building has been closed since March 2020. This is as a direct consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic, because it was no longer possible to provide safe care from the building, due to the lack of space to accommodate social distancing and, therefore, the potential risk of coronavirus infection.
As a result of Woolsthorpe Surgery's closure in March, we have been providing all GP services from the Stackyard Surgery at Croxton Kerrial, and we would like your thoughts about our proposal to make this a permanent arrangement.
In addition, we are also proposing to make an administrative change, moving Stackyard and Woolsthorpe Surgery from NHS Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (LCCG), formerly South West Lincolnshire CCG, into NHS East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group (ELRCCG).
Details of our proposal/have been sent to NHS England, NHS Lincolnshire CCG, and NHS East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group, for their consideration and we would like to hear your thoughts on them too.
We have created a series of questions and answers to explain why we are hoping to make these changes and what they will mean for you.
Please read this letter from Dr Rathbone and Dr Wooding which explains the proposal in full.
