What is happening at my GP Practice?
The practice is currently situated at 382 Upminster Road North - a premises owned by a private landlord. The landlord has issued a 3 months’ notice to vacate the premises and as a tenant of the building, we have a legal obligation to comply and seek an alternative location to deliver healthcare services.
We have explored a range of options in as close proximity to the current premises as possible. Taking into account a number of elements, such as making sure the practice has disabled access, fit for providing NHS services, is well connected by public transport and is available for the practice to relocate straightaway.
After careful consideration, the practice has decided to relocate to South Hornchurch Health Centre, 106 South End Road, Rainham RM13 7XJ. This is approximately 1.9 miles from Spring Farm Surgery, a 6 minute drive by car, and a short journey by bus. Please see map at the end of the page.
South Hornchurch Health Centre is a purpose built health centre that has disabled parking, step free access and on-site community services. We are confident that the improved facilities will provide you with a better patient experience.
How will the relocation affect me?
The practice will be moving to South Hornchurch Health Centre and will be called South Hornchurch Medical Practice. You will continue to be a registered patient of the practice, and we will still be responsible for providing your care and hold your medical records. Unless you choose to register with a different practice - no further action is required by you.
If you decide that you would prefer to register with a different GP, you can do this on the NHS website: https://eastlondonregistergp.nhs.uk/start. Registering takes 15 minutes and your medical records will transfer automatically to the new practice.
Important information on the day of the move
