Colliery Medical Group
We have spent many years as General Practitioners in Colliery Medical Group in Silksworth, Sunderland, we have tried very hard to deliver a high quality and personal service to the patients and families we have been proud to serve.
Following the departure of one of our Partners and despite advertising for almost 2 years we have failed to recruit new Doctors to our Practice.
We have been managing with locum Doctors for this period.
The increasing workload with the financial constraints and the pressure of GP shortages has eventually made us realise this is not a long term sustainable solution.
We need to consider our patients safety and the strain on our current workforce, hence with regret we have handed the contract back to NHS England
NHS England has sent out letters to all our patients informing them of the current position.
