During October and November 2017 patients that are registered with the All Saints' practice were consulted on a proposal by Tower Hamlets CCG to close the All Saints practice when the current contract comes to an end on 31st March 2018. Practices in close proximity were also consulted during this period.
You can find a summary of the feedback from the consultation and how this was fed into plans here: http://www.towerhamletsccg.nhs.uk/all-saints-practice-patient-consultation-report
All Saints is one of two separate Practices operating within Newby Place Health Centre. In line with the CCG primary care strategy to provide Tower Hamlets residents with a quality GP service in the most efficient and effective way possible, the Primary Care Committee has taken the decision to close the Practice and ask patients to re-register at an alternative practice.
Patients are now receiving letters advising of the outcome of the consultation and asking them to register with another practice before 31.3.18. Newby Place Health Centre will remain open - patients will have the choice to register with Gough Walk, the other practice in the health centre, or nearby practices.
The practices and the CCG are working together to prepare for the additional increase in patient registration requests. We will be monitoring the movement of patients on a weekly basis to ensure no patients are left without continued access to a GP.
