Closure & Relocation of Swanland GP surgery
If you are a patient at the Swanland Surgery, or you know someone who is, be aware that a consultation is now ongoing with the proposal being to close the surgery and relocate it to opposite the Spire Hospital in Lowfield Road, Anlaby. For further details see

It should be noted that PATIENTS ARE NOT BEING CONTACTED individually about this.

If you were unable to attend the consultation event you can still make your views known to the GPs by emailing feedback@willerbysurgery.com or by downloading and completing the feedback form available at www.willerbysurgery.com/Surgery-Premises.html.

Please send a copy of your email to our ward councillors via julie@southhunsleyward.info and our MP david.davis.mp@parliament.ukdavid.davis.mp@parliament.uk

Ward Councillor Julie Abraham recorded the views of some of those attending as they left the Hall. Many saw the move it as inevitable and had some advantages but constructive suggestions included:

Retention of some form of consulting room within the village, possibly within the pharmacy (which many thought its existence might be threatened).

Provision of some form of transport possibly on a voluntary basis (the proposed location is not in central Anlaby but a good 10 minute walk away). Many people had no form of personal transport.

It should be realised that the NHS and doctors are not regulated by ERYC or the Parish Councils although our Ward Councillors will strive to represent your views. The regulating body is the Quality Care Commission (CQC).
