Patients who attend Beech Grove Surgery at Brading or its branch at Lake have eight days left to take part in a survey which could help shape the future of their primary care services.
There’s a deadline of midnight on Wednesday 23rd October to complete the short questionnaire, which is available online or by hard copies.
Handing back contract
NHS Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has been informed by the two GP partners at Beech Grove, a husband and wife team, that they are handing back their contract for providing GP services at both their sites on 31st March 2020.
The CCG is exploring options for the future to ensure that the 4,500 registered patients have ongoing access to high-quality GP services from 1st April 2020.

It is asking existing Beech Grove and Lake patients about the services they currently use and value.
The CCG, which is responsible for planning primary care services across the Island, has set up a dedicated page on its Website for Beech Grove.

Savage: Will make decision by mid-November
Tracy Savage, Locality Director for the CCG, said:
“We are really kind to seek the views of patients registered and Beech Grove and Brading as this will influence our decision-making as we do the options appraisal for determining how best services can be provided for patients from April 2020.
“We hope to be in a position to have made our decision by mid-November, which is why the survey deadline has been set for a week tomorrow (23rd October) – as obviously it will take a while to evaluate the findings.”
