|There is a very real possibility that your GP’s Surgery could close by 2021.
Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are considering a strategy document that is proposing a drastic reduction in the number of what they call “sites delivering Primary Care” or what we call GP’s Surgeries.
You can read the report here.
- Page 34 concerns Mid Dorset including Dorchester and envisages a reduction in GP locations from 11 at present to between 4-6.
- Page 35 concerns North Dorset including Sherborne and envisages a reduction in GP locations from 14 at present to between 3-8.
- Page 37 concerns West Dorset and envisages a reduction in GP locations from 8 at present to between 3-5.
These reductions are shockingly large and will effect thousands of local residents and yet the Dorset CCG are not proposing to consult the public about this report at all.
I believe that the public have the right to know about this proposal and should have the right to have a say before any definite decision is taken.
