At NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group’s (CCG) Primary Care Commissioning Committee, held on Wednesday 1 December 2021, approval was granted for the closure of the Jessamine Cottage branch surgery in Aberford. This will take place at the end of March 2022.

The Committee took into account the feedback provided through the public engagement report, which is available for you to read here. The decision was made with the understanding that the CCG will undertake a rapid options appraisal of the needs of patients, in relation to the ongoing provision of primary care services, in the local area. Garforth Medical Practice and local parish councillors are supportive of this and will contribute to this process. Feedback from the public engagement will also feed into the appraisal.

Updates about, and the outcomes of, the appraisal will be posted here on our website in due course.
