Rothesay Surgery in Bedford is set to close at the end of next month.

Patients were informed of Dr Sarah Hood's decision to leave the practice in Rothsay Place by Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Clinical Commissioning Group (BLMK CCG) - but as yet don't know where they will be transferred to.

Nicky Poulain, director of primary care at BLMK CCG, said: “We have been notified by Dr Sarah Hood at Rothesay Surgery of her intention to end her contract to provide primary medical care services from 30 June 2021 as she is moving away.

"We are working with her and local GP practices to ensure that all patients continue to receive uninterrupted access to safe, high-quality GP services.

"Patients will be kept informed and supported throughout the process. We have written to inform them of the recent developments and we will contact them again in June advising them of new arrangements from July 2021.”
