We understand that people are very reluctant to change their G.P, especially if they have been with us for a number of years, but with the continued expansion of Telford housing and population we have reached the difficult decision of having to ask patients outside our area to change their surgery.
These decisions have not been taken lightly and we have consulted with the Telford & Wrekin CCG as well as guidelines from GOV.UK, NHS Choices and NHSEngland to ensure we act in a fair and balanced way.

Although as of January 2015 all GP Practices are free to register or keep patients who live outside their Practice boundary and patients have a right to choose the practice that best suits their needs, it is still for the individual Practice to decide.
We at the Practice do not think it is clinically appropriate or practical to keep patients outside our catchment area.
We would request that if you receive an 'out of area' letter you re-register at a surgery within your new catchment area within 30 days, after which date we will, with regret, have to deduct you from our list.
If you have difficulty in finding a Doctor you may wish to contact NHS Telford and Wrekin, Halesfield 6, Telford, TF7 4BF, Telephone 01952 580300.
