PUBLIC MEETING 24 TH FEB POSTPONED
Premises development at Nunthorpe
There are legal issues around funding which NHS England are currently working through. The project team have advised that its looking like April 2017 before we will know how much funding they can provide for our scheme. In essence it is on hold until a solution to the legal issues can be found.
We have therefore had to make the difficult decision to postpone the public meeting until we have the go ahead from NHS England.
We are extremely disappointed but remaining positive.
IMPORTANT MESSAGE - NEW APPOINTMENT SYSTEM
From 1st April we will be introducing a new appointment system. Please be patient whilst we are working through the changes.
Further details will follow shortly.
Thank you for your co-operation we hope you will benefit from an improved system
