KIPPAX PARISH COUNCIL

COMMUNITY CHARGE

Details will be posted when available.

RADSHAN MEDICAL CENTRE

Official press release .
The Primary Care Commisioning Committee (PCCC) makes decisions on how Leeds Clinical Commisioning Groups (CCGS) partnership plans and commissions primary care services.
ON Tuesday Jan 24th the committee accepted the resignation from the current provider, Radshan Medical Centre, Kippax and agreed to disperse the list amongst local practices.
Dr Simon Stockill, medical director of NHS Leeds CCG'S partnership said, we looked at the current practice premises which have limited functional capacity to offer a wide range of services to the registered population now and in the longer term. the committee made a decision to go with list dispersal because we feel it is the best option for the registered population.
We will undertake an engagement with the registered population to ensure they get the services they need, and to address any concerns arising out of list dispersal.
The practice and the CCG will be wrtiting to all households registered with the practice to formally inform them of the decision and the next steps.

What does this mean in terms of patients .
  This will mean that " the Practice PLC" will end the contract on 30 April 2018
  This will mean that 1916 patients will have to find another practice to provide GP cover.
  The Primary Care Estates Strategy ( Jan 2017) suggested a co location of practices in Kippax to consolidate estates in the area, Kippax has two larger practices providing services to the local population.
   The primary care operational group reviewed the situation at Radshan centre at its meeting in November 2017 and following discussions, the recommendations were
1   the  preferred option is for list dispersal due to the availability of surrounmding practicesand limited capacity of the current building.
2   Undertake informal discussions with local providers and key stakeholdersto inform the decision at PCCC
3    needs to accept the formal resignation from the current provider.

NEXT STEPS
Communicate formaly with the current provider the outcome of the decision by PCCC

Commence work  with the communication and engagement team to support the outcome through an engagement excersise, which would follow similar approach to that of York Road closure.

Conduct further discussions with local providers individually and collectively as a locality in preparation for the end of the contract .

The Parish Council was given a copy of the press release and of the agenda from the NHS LEEDS CCG'S Primary Care commissioning Committee agenda for the meeting of the 24th Jan 2018 . Prior to this we were not consulted .

KIPPAX BATHS CUSTOMER CONSULTATION  INFORMATION 

Following the approval at the councils Executive board on Wednesday 14th December 2016 the sport and active Lifestyles service is starting a programme of consultation to support a feasibility report into the re-provision of a swimming pool within the Kippax catchment area. this is an exciting opportunity to help the service identify what our customers would like to see included within a new facility.

We are keen for our customers, in the first instance, to e-mail their thoughts and views on the re-provision of a swimming pool within the Kippax catchment area. This is an exciting opportunity to help the service identify what our customers would like to see included within a new facility.

It is our intention as  consultation develops throughout 2017 to provide draft indicative plans to help bring to life  how the new centre could look.

The e-mail address is:
                     sportconsultation@leeds.gov.uk
