Long Street Surgery Consultation

The consultation on the future plans for Long Street Surgery in Wigston has now closed.

East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group (ELR CCG) would like to thank everyone who completed the survey.

Patients registered at the practice were written to earlier this year inviting their views on two options for the future of their primary care services.

As well as an online and offline survey, two drop-in sessions were held at Two Steeples Medical Centre, Wigston in September. The consultation period ran from 1 to 30 September 2016.

The outcome of the consultation will be published in due course. Patients registered with the practice will receive a letter informing them of the final decision.

The consultation followed a decision in December 2015 by the Care Quality Commission (the independent regulator of health and social care in England) to remove the practice’s registration based on the findings of their inspection of the surgery. The GP partners at the surgery voluntarily gave up their CQC registration.

ELR CCG also undertook its own investigation and decided to terminate the contract with the GP partners. For these reasons, the GP partners can no longer provide services to patients from Long Street Surgery.

Wigston Central Surgery has been acting as caretaker for Long Street Surgery since December 2015 with support from ELR CCG.
