Mildenhall's White House surgery looking to move from Market Street
A surgery has asked its patients for their views on plans to move to a new location.
Mildenhall’s White House surgery building in Market Street, has been temporarily closed since the end of March as a result of the Government’s Covid-19 pandemic restrictions.
It is run by doctors from the Reynard Surgery, which has its main practice in Red Lodge.
Dr George Hopkinson said that due to operational restrictions, safety issues and poor access, the practice team now had to consider whether it was in the best interests of both patients and staff to apply for the permanent closure of the building.
“We have provided services from the White House Surgery for many years, but the building is very old and its operational issues have prompted our plan to relocate our Mildenhall-based services to the new, modern and more accessible Mildenhall Hub,” said DrHopkinson.
“Some of the current Covid-19 restrictions may ease over the coming months, but coupled with the building’s existing issues, they mean it will no longer be possible to maintain our normal quality of safe healthcare provision from the site.
“We would like to reassure patients that the Reynard Surgery building in Red Lodge comfortably provides space and safe facilities to continue supporting all our patient population, including those from Mildenhall and the surrounding areas, until there is additional service provision in place at the new Mildenhall Hub.”
The public engagement period will run until August 4.
