Under 6’s Contract
From the 15th of June 2015, patients are invited to sign up with a registered GP for free GP care for under 6’s.
Unfortunately, and with great regret, this is not a contract that the doctors in this surgery feel is fair or equitable. For this reason, we have decided not to sign up to it.
We realise this means that we will lose many of you as patients, both your children and perhaps yourselves. As most of us are mothers and fathers and parents of children ourselves, we understand the decision you have to make.
Should you decide to do so, we will forward all of you medical records to the participating GP as speedily as we can.
It is a very sad day for us. When this practice was built, it was built with families in mind. I hope you can all understand why we have had to make this decision as we strive to provide the safest and most efficient healthcare to all members of society.
With this contract the government has effectively removed four doctors from paediatric primary care.
All the best and good health to you all,
Dr. Frank Kenny, Dr. Mary Scott, Dr. Liza-Marie Higgins and Dr. Michelle Rodgers.
