Changes to Battle Hill Health Centre

Wed 24th May 2017

We have this week written to patients who are registered for GP services at Battle Hill Health Centre with an important update in relation to the practice.

The current contract to provide the GP service at Battle Hill is due to end on 30 September, 2017. We are working hard to keep this service open and intend to make it a branch surgery of another local practice.

Making it a branch surgery would ensure that GP services continue to be provided within Battle Hill. As a result of this change, patients would also have a choice of more than one site to attend to access services.

We will keep registered patients updated as things progress. In the meantime, patients can continue to use GP services at Battle Hill Health Centre in the normal way.

If you are registered for GP services at Battle Hill Health Centre, look out for a letter from the CCG with further details which will arrive at your home in the next few days, or if you have further questions, call 0191 217 2803 or email NECSU.comms@nhs.net.
