Nottingham GP surgery announces closure due to retirement

Dr and Mrs Mohindra have made the decision to retire from Springfield Medical Centre next year and therefore the surgery will be closing.

Last patient appointments will take place on the morning of Thursday 31 March 2022.

Dr and Mrs Mohindra have arranged for the services and staff from Springfield Medical Centre in Bulwell to move to The Practice St Albans and Nirmala, a local doctor’s surgery less than 500 metres away. To make this change as easy as possible, patients will automatically transfer to this practice.

From 1 April 2022, patients will automatically be registered at The Practice St Albans and Nirmala and can contact them with any medical help they need.

All registered patients will receive a letter from NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire CCG informing them of Dr and Mrs Mohindra’s retirement, the upcoming closure of the practice and details of The Practice St Albans and Nirmala.

In the meantime, if patients need medical help they should contact Springfield Medical Centre as normal.

If patients would like to register at a different practice to The Practice St Albans and Nirmala, they do have a choice and can do this as long as their chosen practice covers the area they live. Patients are asked to wait until after 1 April 2022 before registering elsewhere.

All GP practices are listed on the NHS website – www.nhs.uk. To register, patients can enter their postcode for a list of your nearest GP practices and contact their chosen GP practice to ask to register with them. Due to Covid-19, some practices may not be registering patients face to face so patients are asked to call them beforehand to check.

Joe Lunn, Associate Director of NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire CCG, said: “I would like to thank Dr and Mrs Mohindra for the continued hard work, dedication and support they have given to the patients of Springfield Medical Centre.”

A Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) document is available for patients here.

If patients have any further queries or concerns they can contact the Patient Experience Team on 0115 8839570 or email nnccg.patientexperience@nhs.net.
