Beeston’s Crossland Surgery set to close

Partners at the Leeds City Medical Practice have told patients that they intend to close the surgery at Crossland Terrace, Dewsbury Road at the end of next month (30 June 2023).

In a letter to patients, they say that they had planned to buy and redevelop the Crossland Surgery which they currently lease, but the rise in building costs means that the project is no longer financially viable.

Instead, they are transferring services to the more modern Parkside Health Centre further along Dewsbury Road near the junction with Tempest Road.

The practice is currently engaging with its patients and asking for feedback. You can comment online here or ring the Patient Care Team on (0113) 467 7500. Alternatively, you can attend a drop-in event on Thursday 25 May, 1-2pm at the Beeston Hill Health Centre (top floor) on Cemetery Road; or join an online meeting on Tuesday 30 May, 6-6:30pm, email for the link to this meeting.

The Partners stress that there will be no change to the services offered to patients and that Parkside Health Centre is only half a mile from Crossland Surgery.

“We are working through this transition and hope that you agree that this is a much better solution for staff and patients than is currently available at Crossland in terms of modern, purpose built facilities.”
