Gainsborough GP surgery suddenly closes

A doctor’s surgery in Gainsborough has suddenly closed down and cancelled all future appointments for patients.

Cleveland Surgery, on Vanessa Drive, will no longer offer routine appointments and patients have been told to call their local pharmacy if they need help.

Lincolnshire West CCG said in a statement to Lincolnshire Reporter that they are “working hard” to put in place alternative arrangements so patients can continue to access services from the practice site.

A spokesperson said: “Due to unforeseen circumstances Cleveland Surgery will not be able to offer routine appointments for registered patients.

“We understand that patients may wish to discuss concerns they have and we would encourage them to contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service on 0300 123 9553.”

The practice was rated by CQC as ‘requires improvement’ overall after an inspection in January 2019.
