Registering with the Surgery
Dr Rutesh Patel, GP Partner at Newquay Health Centre and Dr Charles Stephens, GP Partner at Narrowcliff surgery, said"Our GP practices have nearly reached the maximum number of patients we can safely and effecitvely provide servicces for, with the workforce add estates resources available to us.
“We are therefore planning a temporary suspension of new patient registrations for the foreseeable future from 1 July, 2023, apart from eligible groups.
“By giving advance notice of our intentions, any current residents who are not registered, but who might want to, have a reasonable timeframe to do so.
“Our existing services and appointments continue to run as normal for our patients – it’s business as usual.
