‘Su­per surgery’ bid at hos­pi­tal

12,000 pa­tients fac­ing GP clo­sures

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Front Page -

Around 12,000 pa­tients could see their GP prac­tices closed as health chiefs look to cre­ate a ‘su­per surgery’ at Kent and Can­ter­bury Hos­pi­tal.

The multi-mil­lion pound doc­tors’ surgery would cater for up to 15,000 pa­tients from across the city.

The scheme is be­ing led by the Can­ter­bury Med­i­cal Prac­tice which says it will re­place its two out­dated and strug­gling surg­eries at Coss­ing­ton House and Lon­don Road.

It has been ne­go­ti­at­ing with the East Kent Hos­pi­tals Trust and has now sub­mit­ted a plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion for the site presently used as the staff car park. But the trust in­sists re­place­ment park­ing spa­ces will be found.

A surgery could be built on the K&C car park
