The Avenue Practice Closure

Lead: NHS Leeds CCG

Area: Leeds South & East

Period: 14th Jan 2021 - 25th Feb 2021

An engagement for patients registered at The Avenue GP Practice in Alwoodley.

Brief description of project

The GP at The Avenue GP Practice in Alwoodley has resigned. NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), which is responsible for planning and funding most of your local healthcare services, has accepted the resignation and has looked at alternative arrangements for the practice population. As the building is not suitable to deliver high quality, modern healthcare services in the long term, the practice will close on 31 March 2021.

Who will we speak to?

We want to hear from the people who are currently registered at The Avenue GP Practice

What and how will we ask?

We will write to all registered households at The Avenue. We will tell them about the change and explain how they can register with another local GP practice. We also want to know if they have any concerns or comments about the change.

People can share their views by filling in our online survey or by requesting a paper copy of the survey. We will also hold two online public events where local people can find out more about the change and ask any questions. The events will be held on Zoom (an online meeting platform):

  • Monday 8 February, 1pm – 2pm
  • Tuesday 9 February 6pm – 7pm (including a British Sign Language, BSL, interpreter)

If you want to share your views but are unable to use the survey or join the meeting please ring 0113 843 5470, to leave your details, and we will arrange for someone to call you back.

What will we do?

We will support people to register at another local GP practice of their choice. We will listen to people’s feedback and use this to support people in their move to a new GP.

How can you help?

You can help us by sharing your views in our survey and by encouraging other registered patients to complete the questionnaire.
