Re: Fort House Surgery - relocation to Walton Community Hospital

Whenever a CCG says something like "it's not permanent, probably only 3-5 years", it's likely to become permanent. By the time 3-5 years have passed the people involved will have changed, and it will have been forgotten. The only exception would be if they had a plan to build or purchase new propert...

Re: Elmbridge Sports Hub

Christine (if you are still reading the forum)

Do you know if the Council are ever going to complete the Sports Hub? The Children's Play area and dog walking track are conspicuous in their absence.

Re: Fort House Surgery - relocation to Walton Community Hospital

Near as I have been able to find out, the CCG is entitled to apply to the CIL fund for funding to develop Health Infrastructure. Haven't been able to find any particular rules as to how that money then has to be spent. The other interesting thing i was unable to unearth is that as GP Practices are e...

Re: Fort House Surgery - relocation to Walton Community Hospital

Still odd though.

Usually the cost of equipment would come from internal NHS procurement, not from a CIL.

Re: Fort House Surgery - relocation to Walton Community Hospital

Well that's just bizarre. If NHSE has awarded 100% what do they need the CIL funds for?

Re: Fort House Surgery - relocation to Walton Community Hospital

To be devil's advocate for a second, the CCG commissions GP Services. However the Practices are owned and managed by the partners. They may ask for help with sites, but the location of the sites and management of the practice is down to the partnership. That said: Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs...

Re: Fort House Surgery - relocation to Walton Community Hospital

i was looking at this page: http://www.elmbridge.gov.uk/planning/community-infrastructure-levy-cil-funding/ It has links to the CIL Annual Monitoring Report and the Srategic CIL allocations. On the page it mentions that the CIL can be used for medical facilities. The 2016-17 report shows £36,000 rec...

Re: Fort House Surgery - relocation to Walton Community Hospital

i suspect it will be covered in whatever covenants or arrangements were made when the property was purchased. The retring partners effectively have no interest in funding a move. From their point of view the surgery could just be closed. The current partners clearly want to continue the surgery, but...

Re: Fort House Surgery - relocation to Walton Community Hospital

Re the funding, we do have to remember that the partner GPs would have had to purchase the Fort House site. It's not entirely unfair that they should therefore want to cash out and recover their equity. Found this useful article which gives an insight: https://octopushealthcare.com/news/what-are-you...

Re: Fort House Surgery - relocation to Walton Community Hospital

CFs, I think you make a goods point.

It will also affect adversely Red, yellow and White practices as patients of Fort House will undoubtedly use their car park.

Re: Fort House Surgery - relocation to Walton Community Hospital

I don't think that's entirely right. Whoever owns Fort House, owns the building. The GP Surgery is based there and has it's own accounts and management as GP's operate as seperate entities, however they are commissioned to provide services by the CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group). When they move to...

Re: Fort House Surgery - relocation to Walton Community Hospital

Mind you - if it means they take new registrations again, I'm all for it. 5 members of our family moved into the area about 8 months ago, and still can't register for a GP.

Re: Fort House Surgery - relocation to Walton Community Hospital

i think it all depends how much of the existing building they will use. The parking is about double what was at the old site. At the moment, listed services are: Adult: X-Ray, Dietetics, Continence, District Nursing, Older people with Long term conditions, Neuro-Rehab, Community In-Patients Children...
