VILLAGERS concerned over the rumoured possible closure of a pharmacy at their doctor’s surgery have been reassured of a seamless transition to a new provider once a partnership ends in October.
Marshland St James Parish Council has been in touch with NHS Norfolk after residents raised concerns about the pharmacy at Terrington St John GP surgery.
A statement from NHS Norfolk and sent to council chairman Sue Askew said the current partnership at the practice, a dispensing practice, will dissolve on October 31.
“NHS Norfolk is currently tendering a contract for a new practice in Terrington St John,” said the statement. “We are working towards a seamless transition so there is no disruption for patients.
“The rights to dispense your medicines currently enjoyed by the practice will, in law, cease when the partnership dissolves – i.e. they do not automatically roll over.
