Fail­ing surgery is given reprieve

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

A FAIL­ING GP surgery which could have closed af­ter two se­nior doc­tors were re­moved from their posts will stay open.

Health bosses con­sid­ered clos­ing Gol­borne Health Cen­tre - which would have af­fected around 4,700 pa­tients - af­ter in­spec­tors found it ‘in­ad­e­quate’.

Un­der the man­age­ment of Dr Abubaker Anis and Yas­min Anis, the prac­tice had made lit­tle progress since be­ing placed in spe­cial mea­sures last year.

Both doc­tors have since had their con­tract re­voked - a move which prompted con­cerns about the surgery’s long term fu­ture.

But a new GP will take over in a care­taker ca­pac­ity from Jan­uary 1, while a per­ma­nent re­place­ment is found.

Dr Tim Dal­ton, chair of the CCG, hopes the de­ci­sion made on Novem­ber 5 will ‘re­as­sure’ pa­tients and staff.
