Have your say

A troubled Sutton GP surgery is to merge with a neighbouring practice next week - after more problems with the way it was run were identified during the latest inspection by health watchdogs.

The Pantiles Medical Centre, on Church Street, is merging with Willowbrook Medical Practice on 1st April, meaning its premises will be closed down and all patients automatically transferred to the Willowbrook surgery.

The move comes after a year of negotiations and after the publication of the Care Quality Commission’s latest report on the Pantiles, which identified eight areas where standards were not being met and improvements needed.
