Hundred-year-old practice latest victim in practice closure epidemic


What is more worrying is that NHS England have not made enough effort to keep the surgery viable. They seemed to have made the decision to let it go under. Surely the last resort is practice closure. If they had offered the surgery more money then other practices would likely have gone cap in hand too. What a sorry state and likely only the tip of an iceberg. More practice closures very likely in next few years.
