For some time Tettenhall Medical Practice has been experiencing difficulty in managing and sustaining the branch surgery in Wood Road, Tettenhall. All our patients deserve a high quality healthcare service but for a number of reasons we feel unable to deliver the services we would like to from this branch. Therefore, we have made a request to NHS Wolverhampton Clinical Commissioning Group (WCCG) to close the Wood Road Branch Surgery.

For the Partners of Tettenhall Medical Practice the decision to request the closure of the branch surgery has not been taken lightly. Over the past months we have tried various solutions to keep the branch surgery open. However, the national shortage of GPs has led to difficulty in recruitment of permanent doctors, and due to increasing financial costs we are now at the point where we feel the branch surgery is no longer sustainable. As GPs we are primarily concerned with the well-being of our patients. We believe that by centralising services to a single site at Lower Green Health Centre we will be able to offer a more flexible, efficient GP service with better access for our patients.

A consultation takes place from Tuesday 7th May on the proposed closure of Wood Road Branch Surgery until Friday 30th August. If you need this information in another format or language or if you need assistance completing the survey please call 01902 444571.
