TO OUR PATIENTS
The practice has been advertising for replacement GPs for over 18 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.
PLEASE NOTE: For one afternoon per month we focus on staff development and training, and during this time the surgery will be closed. If you require medical assistance during this time please dial 03000 247 247. Below is a list of planned afternoon closure dates, the surgery closes at 13:00:
Thursday 19th June
Tuesday 15th July
Tuesday 16th September
Wednesday 15th October
Tuesday 11th November
The surgery works closely with West Cumbria Carers and Gillian the support worker - if you would like more information, please ask any member of the surgery team
