Statement on the proposal to close South Park Surgery

“I am sure patients at South Park Surgery will be very disappointed by the proposal to close the branch surgery at South Park in Lincoln.

“The Surgery has faced significant challenges in recent years, but I have been assured that, if this closure goes ahead, better quality healthcare will be delivered and at less cost to taxpayers.

“It is also welcome news that all current admin and health staff will continue to work at The Heath Surgery in Bracebridge Heath, that no jobs will be lost as a result of this proposal and equivalent services will still be available to my constituents.

“I will, of course, be watching the situation closely to ensure that our local Clinical Commissioning Group keeps its pledges to my Constituents and South Park’s patients.

“We all need to ensure they continue to receive the best quality GP services.”
