Banbury Health Centre under closure threat – News

A second preferred option would see a new practice operating out of all three buildings.

A British Medical Association spokesperson said general practice was under #8220;incredible pressure across the country#8221; because of rising demand, flatlining budgets and staff shortages.

It said there was an opportunity to create a new model for Banbury#8217;s GP practices, which have faced #8220;significant difficulties#8221;, partly due to recruitment problems and increasing demand.

Finding a new organisation to take over from PML is also an option but OCCG said it would be difficult to find a provider as it is a small practice.

A health centre with about 6,000 patients in Banbury is threatened with closure in a reorganisation of GP services.
