The practice is aware that a leaflet outlining proposed development to the south of Yarm Road has been delivered to neighbouring houses.
As you may know, the practice needs to move from its current location soon. We undertook a consultation process with patients last year and the area south of Yarm Road was identified as the best location for a new surgery. The practice itself does not own the site or for that matter any land. However, we have worked with the landowners (two of which are Doctors at the surgery) to help secure a village location to build a new surgery. They have kindly offered to support us financially in our aim to keep a GP practice in Middleton St George.
We are still at early stages of securing funding for the new building and it is possible that having planning permission approved may help our cause. However, we are open to alternatives and we continue to meet with a number of parties including NHS England, Darlington CCG, local planners and local developers to try and secure a new home for the medical practice.
