Noticeboard

*EASTER BANK HOLIDAYS*

The surgery will be closed for the Easter bank holidays - Friday 18th April and Monday 21st April. If you need a Doctor urgently during this time please contact CHOC (Cumbria Health on-call) on 03000 247 247.

 

 

TO OUR PATIENTS

Due to issues with GP recruitment and the current premises, Waterloo House Surgery is closing.

The remaining Doctors and staff will be moving to Millom Hospital as a short term measure in April 2014.

The practice has been advertising for replacement GPs for over 12 months with no success, this is a problem nationally and country wide, but particularly her in Millom due to the current environment and additional duties required such as urgent and emergency care.

The premises are not fit for purpose and are not compliant with health and safety regulations and will fail inspections, therefore with the support of our colleagues in the CCG, Partnership Trust and NHS England we will be moving into an area in the hospital, which will become the GP Medical Practice.

 

UPDATE

We still do not have a definite 'moving in' date for our new premises in Millom hospital. As soon as we know we will update the notices in the surgery and this website so keep our patients informed.

Thank you for your patience.
