March 2018 – Temporary Closure of Freshford Surgery

We regret to inform patients that our Freshford surgery site is temporarily closed on safety grounds. Freshford Surgery has operated for many years from an old building in order to provide a convenient local service to patients at the northern end of our practice area.

Following a recent inspection by the Care Quality Commission, we requested a number of independent safety reports. These have identified multiple problems with the Freshford Surgery facilities in their present state, including with the fabric of the building. As a result we feel that we have no choice other than to suspend medical services from that site whilst we investigate possible remedial measures.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused as we do our best to establish whether we can continue to operate a medical facility at that site. In the meantime Freshford surgery sessions will transfer to our Beckington and Fromefield sites. Existing appointments at Freshford will be honoured or we will contact you to re-arrange your appointment at Beckington surgery or Fromefield surgery.

Drs. Beaven, Bruggers & Tippin
