Patient list dispersals at GP practice in Waltham Forest

The patient list for a GP practice Brunner Road Medical Centre, 2 Brunner Road, E17 7NT is about to be dispersed. This means that the patients registered with this practice will have a choice to register with new local practices. 

Patients should receive a letter in the post to explain their options. 

Brunner Road Medical Centre is a practice provided by Dr Uduku, as a sole contractor. Dr Uduku occupies the current premises under a lease arrangement which expired in 2015.  

The practice needs to vacate its current premises by 31 January 2017 as the building is scheduled to be demolished to make way for the redevelopment scheme along Brunner Road. 

Under the terms of his contract, Dr Uduku is under obligation to ensure that premises are in place for his patients, and continuity of care is not affected by the fact that his lease is expiring. 

NHS Waltham Forest Clinical Commissioning Group (WFCCG) and NHS England (NHSE) have been looking at various options with the Dr Uduku, but he has now reached a decision to hand back his contract. 

A decision has therefore been taken to disperse the list of registered patients to other practices in the area, of which there are 11, to provide the necessary continuity of care. 

NHSE will be writing to all registered patients with a list of practices which they can chose to move to, and will be holding drop-in sessions for patients on 12:00 to 14:00 at the Brunner Road surgery on 4 January 2017. The plan for dispersal will include provision for ensuring vulnerable patients are supported during the dispersal process.

Practices within a one-mile radius of Brunner Road, nearest first.
