Important information about your GP practice:
Future of Meneage Street Surgery, 100 Meneage Street, Helston, TR13 8RF

I am writing with some important information about your GP practice, Meneage Street Surgery in Helston.

NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Integrated Care Board (CIOSICB) is responsible for commissioning (that means planning, paying for and monitoring) GP practices across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. Services at Meneage Street Surgery is currently provided by two partners, Dr Vyvyan and Dr Shaw. Drs Vyvyan and Shaw have, with great regret, decided to provide CIOSICB with a termination notice confirming they intend to leave their NHS contract on 31 March 2023.

Currently the primary care team within CIOSICB is working with other GP providers in the area to explore what the future of the surgery might look like. Until the end of March 2023, full GP medical services will continue to be provided exactly as they are now. I wish to reassure you that you will always have access to an NHS GP practice, and until we update you further you should remain registered with Meneage Street Surgery. Our highest priority is to get the clarity that you need at the first opportunity.

I will write again towards the end of November 2022 to provide an update.

Please note that currently you do not need to take any action. As stated above Meneage Street Surgery remains open as usual, so please continue to access services in the normal way.

I appreciate that this letter may feel unsettling, but please be assured that you will not be without a local GP service and more details about the future plans will follow at the end of November 2022.

If you have any questions about this letter please contact the primary care team in the first instance, rather than the practice. You can email or telephone 01726 627711.

Yours sincerely

Kirsty Lewis
Deputy director of primary care
