Both providers at Church View Medical Centre and Colliery Medical group contacted NHS Sunderland CCG, letting us know they no-longer wish to provide GP services after 30 September 2017. Six information sessions were held with patients, over three dates (1 June, 9 June, and 12 June).  Below are links to the Question & Answer sheet, provided to all patients, and the report from these information sessions.
