The practice will now provide an urgent service to those patients who live within the practice boundary area (Southowram) but who have chosen to register with a GP, closer to their normal place of work (Out of area) which is participating in the Patient Choice Scheme being piloted in the following areas:
- Central London (City & Hackney teaching PCT, Tower hamlets PCT and Westminster PCT)
- Nottingham City PCT
- Manchester Teaching PCT
- Salford PCT
Should patients find themselves unable to attend work due to illness and require the services of a GP either by attending the surgery or by the need of a home visit, we will provide services where clinically determined as urgent.
