I have today further written to the Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt.
I have stated concern about those 2500 patients who remain registered to Deer Park Medical Centre. I have urged the Secretary of State to press the IRP to keep the practice open at least until a formal decision is made on 11th April 2017.
It is unacceptable for Deer Park to be closed early, leaving 2500 patients without access to a GP, and unacceptable for it to close while the IRP is still investigating.
