The long-awaited arrival of John Lewis to Brighton city centre may have the unintended consequence of leaving 11,500 patients looking for a new GP.
The Argus has learned that The Practice Group’s decision to terminate its contract for five GP surgeries in Brighton and Hove is based partly because of a need to relocate two of its surgeries under upcoming redevelopment schemes.
The company, which is set to leave the city at the end of June, currently has a practice based in Boots in North Street – a site which John Lewis bought last year and are set to submit a planning application for in a matter of weeks.
