Welcome to Darnall & Richmond Surgeries

Proposed Closure of our Richmond Road Branch Site


Darnall Health Centre, incorporating Richmond Road Surgery has made the difficult decision to consult with our patients about the proposed closure of our Richmond Road branch surgery.  The proposal to close the branch surgery has not been taken lightly and the wellbeing of patients remains our priority.     
Why is the change being proposed?    
The practice believes that it is no longer sustainable to continue to run the branch surgery based on Richmond Road. The practice serves just 399 patients - significantly less than the average of 9007 patients per practice in England.  The main Darnall Health Centre site on York Road is just over 2 miles away and there are several other surgeries close by. The closure of the Richmond Road site will allow more NHS funding to be spent on direct patient care in the area. 
What this may mean for patients   
We are proposing the closure of the Richmond Road branch surgery.  If the proposal is accepted, you will be required to transfer your registration to the main practice site at Darnall Health Centre on York Road. You could also choose to re-register with another surgery which serves your postcode.  All local practices are currently accepting new patients.  Some local practices include; 
Richmond Medical Centre, 462 Richmond Road, S13 8NA 
Handsworth Medical Practice, 432 Handsworth Road, S13 9BZ 
Whitehouse Surgery, 1 Fairfax Drive, S2 1SL 
Clover Practice, Darnall Primary Care Centre, S9 4QH 
Darnall Hall Surgery, Darnall Primary Care Centre, S9 4QH   
How you can have your say    
A formal consultation about the proposed closure of the Richmond Road branch surgery began on 4th January 2022. The consultation will take place over 8 weeks, ending on 28th February 2022. The purpose of the consultation is to understand and consider the views of our patients on the proposal, and to understand more fully what the impacts of the change may be.    
We welcome your views. You can take part in the consultation by completing a patient questionnaire which is available from reception at Richmond Road Surgery and Darnall Health Centre. The questionnaire is also available online at https://bit.ly/RichmondRd.
Please contact us on 0114 244 9525 if you require a printed copy of the questionnaire to be posted to you, need the information in another format or language, or need help completing the survey.  
We will be holding a patient consultation meeting to answer any questions you may have. This meeting will be held on Tuesday 25th January at 10am.  Due to the current COVID-19 situation this meeting will be held on Zoom.  There will be a senior member of the Practice team available at the session to answer your questions.  Register in advance for this meeting at  https://bit.ly/RichmondRdMeeting.  Minutes of the meeting will be made available. 
Informing you of the outcome of the consultation  
Once the consultation closes, a consultation report will be written which will include a full analysis of the responses, key issues and recommendations. The outcome report will then be presented to NHS Sheffield CCG for consideration. Following consideration and a decision being made, the outcome will be shared with patients in the same way as you have received this letter.  Should the proposal be accepted then all patients will be contacted advising you of the next steps.     
We understand that some patients will be disappointed to hear of this proposal.  We welcome you to share your views in our consultation and ask for your understanding and support to work with us through this proposed change.

Electronic Isolation Note

People unable to work for more than seven days because of coronavirus (COVID-19) can obtain an isolation note through a new online service.

Isolation notes will provide employees with evidence for their employers that they have been advised to self-isolate due to coronavirus, either because they have symptoms or they live with someone who has symptoms, and so cannot work.

The notes can be accessed through the NHS 111 online.

After answering a few questions, an isolation note will be emailed to the user. This will relieve the pressure on practices having to issue fit notes, if patients contact you asking for a fit note, direct them to https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note.
