St. Martins Surgery in Knowle will continue to provide services for a twelve month temporary period following the recent resignation of the current partners.
In July ITV News West Country revealed how the surgery had written to its 6,000 patients telling them their two doctors had tendered their resignations. The GPs, Dr Hard and Dr Houghton, said they had been unable to recruit new doctors to replace those who had left.
NHS England and Concord Medical Centre are in the final stages of agreeing a temporary contract starting from 15 September 2014. All services currently provided at the surgery continue. Opening hours and surgery hours remain the same.
The next year will be used to consider long-term options for the future of the Practice.
