What is changing?
NHS Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has written to 10,600 patients to assign to a new GP practice, ahead of the closure of four practices in the city.
The four practices affected are:
Please note: All four Healthaction practices are located in the same buildings/health centres as other GP practices, but none of the other practices in these buildings are affected.
What happens next?
All patients registered with a Healthaction practice will receive a letter informing them about who their new GP practice will be, and when they should start using it.
Patients do not need to take any further action. All medical records will be securely transferred to their new practice.
However, people do also have the right to choose a different GP practice if they would prefer, and the letter tells them how to do this.
Where can I get further help and advice?
Anyone registered with a Healthaction practice who does not receive a letter by 6 July 2018, they should contact NHS Liverpool CCG on 0845 111 0692 (between 10am-12pm, or 2pm- 4pm, Monday to Friday).
