Future Provision of Medical Services in Niton

Serious concerns have been raised over the future provision of medical services in Niton in the light of the recent report published by the Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). The Parish Council is currently preparing a comprehensive response to the CCG proposals.

If you consult your doctor at the Niton and/or Godshill South Wight Medical Practice surgeries, you may wish to respond to the consultation in view of the CCG’s proposal to:

continue to support our smaller surgeries while GP partnerships are able to sustain services from those locations, however we need to have a clear policy on how we support practices that appear unsustainable

and:

not close any existing building working outside the neighbourhoods, however should any of these become unviable, for instance because doctors retire or leave, we will seek to disperse patients to the nearest neighbourhood surgeries.” (Page 17)

The nearest proposed neighbourhood surgeries would be Ventnor or Brighstone.

Niton and Whitwell Parish Council’s reponse to the consultation is available here

Responses to the consultation, which runs until 17th February, may be sent by e-mail to
