Flu injections are now available to all over 65's and those under 65 who are at risk.
Please call the surgery for dates and times.
The planning application for our practice move to Burwood Ward (Walton Community Hospital) has been submitted to Elmbridge Council and is now available for comment (until 28th December)
We would be extremely grateful if you could take the time to comment favourably on the planning application (2018/3453) as this will have a huge bearing on whether our application is successful.
There are two planning applications submitted to Elmbridge Borough Council which can be found at https://www.elmbridge.gov.uk/planning.
Change of Use of Fort House Surgery to residential use. This permission is required so the move can take place. Application number: 2018/3462
Change of Use at Burwood Ward, Walton Community Hospital from Hospital (C2) to General Practitioners Surgery (D1). Application number: 2018/3453
If you have any questions regarding the move, please feel free to contact the Practice Manager (Harriet) directly on Harriet.email@example.com
We thank you for you continued support

Move Update November 2018
The joint Planning Applications will go to Elmbridge Council at the end of this week and will be available for public comment the week beginning 19th November (no exact date given yet). Once we have the reference number, we will post it on this website with a link to the Council Planning page.
The Planning applications will involve:
The Change of use of Fort House Surgery (32 Hersham Road) from GP surgery to residential.
During engagement with local residents and patients we advised that we would be applying to change it back to its original state (of one residence).
Please note that we have been advised to submit a plan for 3 residential units on the site at 32 Hersham Road. This has been suggested by our Planning Consultants after discussions with Elmbridge Council, and this decision is not at the request of the Practice.
2. The Change of Use of Burwood Ward in Walton Community Hospital from residential institution to GP Surgery.
Once the applications are validated by the Council, they will go ‘live’ for public consultation and site notices will be put up. The immediate neighbours will be notified.
There will then be a 28 day period for formal comment by statutory stakeholders and local residents.
Thank you to all our patients who took part in the survey for the Public Engagement
Please find attached the results of this which show an overwhelming majority of you support our move.
We are extremely grateful for your time and energy so far with our project, but can we ask that you also take time to respond to the public consultation when it is live on the Council’s Website.
We are reaching the crucial stage and if planning is rejected, then the move would not go ahead and the project (ETTF – Estates, Technology and Transformation Fund) money would be lost to Elmbridge.
Please do not hesitate to contact the surgery directly if you have any queries regarding the planning application or our plans (firstname.lastname@example.org)
