An engagement for patients registered at Sunfield Medical Centre or Hillfoot Surgery to share their feedback on proposed changes at the services.
Brief description of project
Sunfield Medical Centre and Hillfoot Surgery have jointly submitted a proposal to the Integrated Care Board (ICB) in Leeds, formally known as the NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), to engage with the registered patient populations of both their practices about closing Sunfield Medical Centre permanently on the 31 March 2023 and transferring the registered patient’s list to Hillfoot Surgery.
The Integrated Care Board in Leeds is responsible for planning and funding most of your local healthcare services and has agreed for this engagement to take place. They are providing support to both of the practices to ensure that as many people as possible have the opportunity to have their say.
We are keen to hear your feedback and comments about this proposal.
Who will we speak to?
We want to hear from patients, and relatives, friends, or carers of patients registered at either Sunfield Medical Centre or Hillfoot Surgery.
What and how will we ask?
We want to hear from people about what is important to them when accessing primary care services as well as how they collect their medication and thoughts they have on the proposals to close Sunfield Medical Centre and transfer patients to Hillfoot Surgery.
People can feedback using an online survey, paper survey, attending one of three focus groups, or by contacting the practices directly. The practices are writing to each household of registered patients with full details about this proposal and a survey to provide feedback.
How can you help?
If you are registered at either practice or are related to a patient, either as a family member, friend or carer, at either practice then we want to hear from you.
The easiest way to find out more and share your feedback is by completing the online survey via the link below:
You can also complete a paper copy of the survey, attend one of three focus groups or contact the practice directly (see below for contact information).

Attend an online meeting via Zoom on Thursday 15 September between 2:30pm and 3:30pm.
What will we do?
We will analyse your responses and use them to help ensure that concerns raised by patients are addressed wherever possible. We will also use the feedback to help plan, commission, and provide future services and care for people living in Leeds..
