Arun Medical Group closure

Dr Jill Adams, Dr Oliver Middleton and Sister Rachel Priest have informed Coastal West Sussex Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) that they are resigning from their contract to provide GP services for the NHS at Arun Medical Group.

This means that the clinicians’ contract to provide services to patients at Arun Medical Group will end on 31 October 2016.

The CCG priority is to guarantee that patients have continued access to a full range of GP services and patients were invited to ask questions and give their views by 12 August 2016.

At the Primary Care Commissioning Committee on 16 August 2016 the decision was made to disperse Arun Medical Group’s 7,070 patient list into the other GP practices in Arun.

This means that patients will need to re-register with another GP practice.

Finding a new practice

A final letter dated 17 August was sent to all patients confirming the decision and advising them to register with a new practice.

A guide for Arun Medical Group patients wanting to find a new practice and register with them is available.
