Following the sad passing of Dr Khan-Gilbert in August this year, Dr Shazia Chaudhary and her team are continuing to provide high quality care to the patients of Pond Tail surgery.
This is a short-term solution so Surrey Heartlands Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is working with Pond Tail Surgery to review all available options for the delivery of long term, sustainable primary health care for patients registered with the practice.
The CCG wants hear from patients about how local GP services could be provided to patients in the future. They would like to understand what their priorities are for future service provision and what matters most to patients.
This will help to inform the decision that the CCG needs to take early next year regarding how GP services will be provided for local people.
To start this process, the CCG has produced a short survey that they would like as many local people as possible, especially Pond Tail patients, to complete. It should only take a few minutes.
Please encourage any local people you know to complete the survey: family members; friends; neighbours and any local groups you are aware of.
You can access the survey by clicking on the following link:
The CCG will also post copies of the survey to people on request via the following:
• Tel: 0300 561 1555
• SMS: 07917 087 560 (text phone only)
• Write: FAO Communications and Engagement Team, NHS Surrey Heartlands CCG, Cedar Court, Guildford Road, Leatherhead, Surrey, KT22 9AE and make sure you include your full address and postcode.
Paper copies can be returned direct to the surgery by posting them through the letterbox. This is secure and checked daily. Alternatively you can post completed surveys to the address above.
The closing date of the survey is Friday 8 January 2021.
The anonymised results of the survey will be shared with the CCG’s Primary Care Commissioning Committee. In early 2021, proactive engagement will take place, the arrangements for which will be shared shortly. Given the ongoing pandemic, events will need to be virtual.
