Following lengthy discussions with NHS England, Haxby Group is now planning to relocate the provision of health care services from the temporary modular building at Priory Primary School, Hull, to its surgery sites at Orchard Park and Kingswood.

The planning permission and lease for this building has expired and, due to improvement work at the adjoining school, it is no longer viable or suitable for the provision of safe, quality care.

From opening in 2009, the modular building was always a temporary solution and the intention was always to transfer to a more permanent facility.

The exact date for this relocation of services, has not yet been finalised and Haxby Group will continue to work with NHS England to try to find long term solutions.

We would like to reassure our Haxby Group patients that we will continue to deliver their healthcare and by the same doctors and other healthcare professionals. Patients will remain registered with the practice with all the usual services still available from Haxby Group’s Kingswood and/or Orchard Park surgery sites.

Other options are being explored and a consultation has now begun with local people to discuss the future for those patients affected by this change.

No jobs are at risk and patients will continue to receive healthcare at alternative nearby surgeries.

Haxby Group GP Partner Dr Laura Balouch, said: “I am sure that the relocation of services may be the cause of some concern.However, I can assure patients that we will endeavour to do our best to minimise any disruption and to ensure that we will maintain the highest standard of care throughout and beyond any changes.

“We will be keeping patients as informed as possible as matters develop.”
