The Orchard Surgery runs a branch surgery in Colnbrook. The surgery is in a small building on the High Street. The building is rented and when the lease came up for renewal, the rent was increased and is not sustainable for the practice. A short team new lease was agreed to give the practice time to try to find alternative premises. The practice has worked hard to identify new premises with support from Colnbrook Parish Council, Slough Borough Council and Slough Clinical Commissioning Group. Unfortunately new premises have not been identified yet and the practice is required to give notice by the end of September, to take effect at the end of March 2017.
The GP Partners want to maintain a branch surgery in Colnbrook.
Several options have been explored, including alternative premises (both residential and council owned premises), purchasing of the existing site and extending other premises within Colnbrook to accommodate a surgery premises. Several ‘walk arounds’ have been conducted with partners in addition to property searches, unfortunately none of these options are feasible and financially viable.
Further work is continuing to explore other options, including additional sites and re-negotiation of the existing premises. Due to the legal requirements of the lease, the GP Partners will be serving a break clause notice on the existing premises by 27 September, 2016. The search for further options and solutions will continue and the GPs with local stakeholders are committed to try to find a suitable solution. Should a solution not be found, it is our responsibility as GP Partners to inform the population we serve of the possibility that we will need to apply to NHS England to close the surgery in Colnbrook.
If the branch surgery closure application does go ahead, Colnbrook patients would be required to visit our main surgery, Langley Health Centre, two miles away for GP services, as lots of them do now.
Our commitment is to continue to serve our patient population and we look forward to finding a sustainable solution for our patients.
