Millbrook Update

An excerpt from the NHS England Community Bulletin reads:

Issue 11: February 2018

 

Latest position on Millbrook Surgery

We are pleased to say that agreement has been reached to secure the future of Millbrook Surgery.

The owner has agreed to sell the building to a property company that specialises in providing GP premises. Under current policy this is the only means of securing the surgery for the use of NHS services in the long term.

The arrangement means Millbrook will be leased back so Rame Group Practice can continue to provide care. The cost to the NHS is in line with the expectations of the district valuer, who helps safeguard taxpayer interests.

If the sale cannot be finalised by 1 April, then the current licence will be extended to make sure the doors stay open for patients.

Dr Lawrence Barnes, partner at Rame Group Practice, said: "We're really pleased that a deal's been struck on the surgery, because that means we can carry on providing care without any disruption. That makes life simpler for everyone."

Issue 10: January 2018

 

Latest position on Millbrook Surgery

 

We would like to reassure patients that NHS England and the Rame Group Practice are continuing to work with the current landlord of Millbrook Surgery to explore ongoing arrangements for the surgery site.

 

NHS England and the Rame Group Practice remain committed to providing GP care in the Rame peninsula and patients will continue to be treated at Millbrook Surgery for the foreseeable future.

 

This is demonstrated in the investment we’ve already made at Millbrook Surgery, with the secure IT connection in particular, and the work the practice have undertaken to completely redecorate inside and out, installing infection control compliant flooring, linking the phone system and installing a patient information TV.

 

As we explained at the end of 2017, the landlord of Millbrook Surgery had informed us that he wished to sell the building on the open market and that local residents may see a ‘For Sale’ sign outside the surgery.

 

We would again like to assure patients that alternative premises will be found if the Rame Group Practice is unable to continue providing care from Millbrook Surgery in the future.

 

We will continue to ensure that we keep patients of the Rame Group Practice, and the local community, up to date on any developments of the landlord’s decision to sell the building.

 

Please keep using your local surgery as you do now.

Millbrook Surgery

As you will know, we rent the Millbrook Surgery premises. The landlord has now informed us that he wishes to sell the building on the open market, so you may see a 'For sale' sign outside in the coming days.

GP care will continue to be provided from the building for as long as possible, but clearly we have to look at alternatives, given that both NHS England and the Rame Group Practice remain absolutely committed to providing GP care in the Rame peninsula.

That means other premises will be found if the Rame Group Practice is unable to continue providing care from Millbrook Surgery.

in some circumstances the NHS can make an offer to purchase a building and lease it back to the practice. However, as we are responsible for using public money, we must ensure that purchase is only considered at market value.

NHS England will explore this option with the landlord, even while the building is advertised for sale on the open market.

We will keep patients and the local community informed of any significant developments involving the premises.
