This story is over

Four Lincolnshire GP surgeries will close down at the start of next year.

The Burton Road and Arboretum GP surgeries in Lincoln, Metheringham Surgery, and Pottergate Surgery in Gainsborough will all close on January 7, 2017.

New providers were not found in time to take over the management of the practices after Universal Health Ltd asked the NHS to end its contract on August 1 due to financial difficulties.

Lincolnshire West CCG has said that patients who need to move will all have an alternative option within 0.2 miles of their current surgery.
