Welcome to Overseal Surgery
It is with regret that we have to inform you that the practice will be closing from 31 January 2020. For the last few years we have been trying to recruit a suitable Doctor who would become a partner in the practice and continue to run it following my retirement.
However, as you are probably aware there is a recruitment problem in General Practice, and the added pressures placed on a single-handed GP result in a small practice being even less of an attractive prospect for a younger doctor. Sadly, we have not been successful in obtaining a partner. We have also explored the option of merging with another local practice, but unfortunately the practicalities and logistics of such an arrangement have proved difficult to manage the workload between two sites.
It is therefore with great sadness we have taken the decision to give notice to close the practice from 31st January 2020. The Surgery has been in the village for 100 years, I have been a Doctor for 50 years (35 years in Overseal), and Sally has been nursing for nearly 40 years (26 years in Overseal), so this has been a very hard decision for us to make.
NHS England and NHS Improvement has accepted our resignation and along with NHS Derby and Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group are committed to ensuring all patients at the surgery will continue to have access to GP services in the future. We will be able to provide information to help you to register with one of the neighbouring practices and details of the practices that are nearest to your address area are available on this site (click here to download a document with details for alternative practices.docx 38KB). We would be grateful if you could make arrangements to register with an alternative practice as soon as possible. Alternatively, you may wish to search for the GP practices closest to where you live by entering your postcode at https://www.nhs.uk/service-search/ If you do not register with another practice by 31st January you will automatically be allocated to your nearest practice.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your loyalty to the practice, and to say that we feel it has been a privilege to care for our patients over the years. We, and our staff would like to wish you all the very best for the future.
Dr. Vishnu Parmar, SN Sally Parmar and all the staff at Overseal Surgery.
We are a rural, dispensing village practice in the heart of the National Forest and proud that we have been able to maintain a traditional, friendly 'Family Doctors' atmosphere.
