Our Meden Vale site is due to close this December
Please note that our site in the Meden Vale Medical Centre is due to close on Monday 31 December 2018.
From this date all your future appointments will be at the Warsop Primary Care Centre located on Church St, Warsop, Mansfield NG20 0BP.
There will be one telephone number (01623 843521) and the process for booking appointments will stay the same. We will offer the same amount of appointment slots.
How the decision to close the surgery was made
In July 2018 the Practice applied to the Mansfield and Ashfield CCG (an organisation that makes decisions about local healthcare) to close the Meden Vale Surgery.
We then carried out patient engagement between 16 July and 8 October 2018 to understand the impact of closing the surgery. The findings of our engagement were included in a report to the Mansfield and Ashfield CCG in November. We have now been informed by the CCG that we can go ahead with our proposals to close Meden Vale surgery.
We would like to thank all those who offered valued feedback as part of our engagement exercise.
What happens next?
We are committed to providing high quality care from our single site at Warsop Primary Care Centre.
You will remain registered with Meden Medical Services and we will continue to care for you. Therefore you need take no further action.
We have listened to concerns raised during the engagement period and we will continue to engage with patients and address any concerns as they arise.
A list of Frequently Asked Questions & Answers is available to view here. If you are worried or have questions about how you will continue to receive care, it is important you speak to us. You can phone, email, write or call us on 01623 843521.
