Stop Living Care’s proposal to make one full time doctor post redundant.

After our successful campaign to save Soho Square General Practice, the new provider, Living Care, promised the Patient Participation Group that they would retain both of our popular local GPs, Dr. Brassey and Dr. Cheung. Less than a year-and-a-half into the contract, they notified the PPG of their intention to delete one full-time doctor post. We believe that this would be detrimental to our local Surgery and have negative effects for our diverse Soho community.

Why is this important?

Soho Square General Practice has two full-time doctors, Dr. Brassey & Dr. Cheung, who are respected in our local community. They serve a diverse range of patients, including many Soho residents, and have developed a specialism serving London’s Chinese & LGBTQ+ communities.
