A number of residents have been contacting me in respect of a rumour they have heard that the Adel GP Surgery on Long Causeway is going to close within the next 12 months. I took this up with the Leeds CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) who are responsible for GP services across Leeds and they have responded as set out below.

“Dear Councillor Anderson

Thank you for sharing your concerns with the CCG.  I can confirm that we have not received a formal request from the practice to close the branch site.  A branch site could only be closed following a formal and robust process which includes patient engagement and agreement from the CCG as the commissioner of the service.   

We will make contact with the practice to understand if there is any substance to these rumours and will be in touch to let you know the outcome.”
