Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I have to be seen by a different GP before the closure date?

Dr Falak Naz has left the practice, but has ensured that there is another doctor at the practice until the it closes at 6.30 pm, Friday 29th June 2018.

This is to allow you time to register with a new practice and enable you to keep any pre-booked appointments.

Will my appointment times and dates be the same until the practice's closure date?

All appointments that have been already booked at the Burley Street surgery will be covered by another doctor, so you will not need to book another appointment. Please attend your appointment as normal.

Will the other doctor know what medicines I'm taking/what treatment I'm on?

Don’t worry; the doctor will have access to your medical records so that they can use them as part of your consultation. It is always handy to make a list of the medicines you are taking and bring it with you to your appointment.

Why do i have to register with a new, locfal GP practice?

As Dr Naz is the only GP at Burley Street Surgery the practice will close at 6.30pm on Friday 29th June 2018, this means you can no longer be seen at Burley Street and you will need to register with new GP practice.

I’m pregnant / have a long-term condition / am in the middle of a course of treatment?

In the coming weeks, we will work with Burley Street Surgery to make sure that patients who are in the middle of a course of treatment/ are pregnant/ have a long-term condition are provided with the support they need to find a suitable new practice.

My prescription is due in the next few weeks – should I move practice immediately?

If you’re expecting a new repeat prescription in the next few weeks, we’d recommend you change your GP practice once you have collected it.

You need to have registered with a new GP practice by 8th June 2018.

I’m worried that a new GP might change my medication.

As part of the GP registration process, some practices will undertake a standard health check, including a review of any medication you are currently taking.

If this is not the case with your new GP, you should arrange to have a check-up as soon as possible to discuss any medication you’re taking.

I am worried about my care in the future.

We appreciate that this may be a worrying time for patients. We’re here to answer your questions or help you find a new practice. Come along to one of our two drop-in sessions, call us on 01422 307400 or email us at
