Welcome to Priory Avenue Surgery
Our surgery is located in Central Caversham within walking distance of the local shopping centre. Although there is no parking available on site, we are close to two public car parks and the surgery is well served by several local bus routes
Please be aware that there are restrictions in place on Priory Avenue. However, there is a disabled parking space outside the surgery for patients' use.
Patient Participation Group
We have a very active patient participation group which meets regularly and supports us in making the changes that will improve the patient experience. We are always keen to hear from people who are interested in joining the PPG. If you would like to get involved please contact the PPG Chair, Mr Francis Brown on email@example.com
Priory Avenue Closure
I am writing to let you know that Priory Avenue Surgery will be closing on 30th June 2018.
Since September 2016 GP services at Priory Avenue Surgery have been provided by One Medical Group. There have been issues with the service and I wrote to you in February 2017 explaining that the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) was working with One Medical group to address these. Whilst there have been some improvements since, One Medical Group has found it difficult to recruit permanent GPs and a mutual decision has therefore been reached to end the current contract for Priory Avenue Surgery.
The CCG’s priority is to ensure that patients receive high quality general practice services from surgeries that are large enough to provide modern primary care and be viable in the long term. The current registered patient list size of just over 6,000 is now considered too small to be able to attract staff and offer the full range of primary care services. We are also aware that the size of the current premises is a constraint.
It is therefore with regret that the CCG has concluded that the best option for patients of Priory Avenue Surgery is to close the surgery on 30th June 2018 and ask patients to register with another local GP practice.
