Patients dispersed from Wilson Health Centre GP surgery

Sandra Vogel made this Freedom of Information request to NHS Merton Clinical Commissioning Group

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear NHS Merton Clinical Commissioning Group,

There were 3,669 patients registered at the Wilson Health Centre GP practice on 29 March 2017. (source: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/p...)

The centre was closed at the end of that month.

Can you please clarify

a) what measures have been taken to ensure these people are registered with a GP?

b) how many of the 3,669 are without a GP at the date closest to the date of this request (28 May 2017) for which you have information.

This question is asked in the light of your commitment to ensure that all patients dispersed would be tracked to ensure that none are left without a GP.

For the absence of doubt - the minutes of your 26th January meeting state

Point 8.2
CG raised a concern that, with the list being dispersed, patients might “fall between the gaps”. LW responded that all patients had been provided with information to support them in deciding with whom to register and a helpline had also been established. Furthermore, LW assured, all dispersed patients would be tracked to ensure that none were left with a GP.

The unfortunate error was corrected at your meeting of 23 March

point 3.1
“Furthermore, LW assured, all dispersed patients would be tracked to ensure none were left with a GP.”
To be replaced by:
“Furthermore, LW assured, all dispersed patients would be tracked to ensure none were left without a GP.”
