Changes at Dr Swedan and Partner GP Practice

On the 13 January 2020 Drs Swedan and Fernandes at Lord Lister Health Centre, 121 Woodgrange Rd, Forest Gate, London E7 0EP notified NHS Newham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) that they had taken the decision to hand back their contract to deliver primary medical services with effect from 31 March 2020. This means that from this date, primary care services will cease and the current practice will close.

The CCG would like to thank Drs Swedan and Fernandes for their services to patients in Newham and will work with the practice to ensure that patients continue to have uninterrupted access to services at Lord Lister Health Centre until 31 March 2020. 

What does this mean for you as a patient?

You will need to ensure that you have registered with a new practice before 31 March 2020. Once you have registered with a new GP, your medical records will be automatically transferred to your new practice.
