The CCG and NHS England have decided to close Drayton Road Surgery when the current doctor retires in September.

Dr Prabhakar Kusre, who is in his seventies has been the sole GP at the practice for the past 28 years.

These patients will now be divided between other surgeries in the area.

One patient said: "We are so upset that they are closing our practice. It is an excellent surgery and the service and care we receive is fantastic. It is a sad loss to the community."

The CCG is holding a drop in session tonight (Thursday) at the Sycamore Centre on the Lakes Estate to answer any questions concerned patients may have.

Another session will be held in Monday, at the ame venue, between 2pm and 4pm.
