Another twist in Bannview Medical Practice fiasco

The Bannview Medical Practice in Portadown will be taken over by the Southern Health Trust, it has been confirmed.

It’s the latest twist in a saga, which has rumbled on for months, leaving 5,200 patients in a state of limbo.

The threat of closure was a real one earlier this month after its last remaining doctor resigned.

On Monday, it emerged that a contractor in negotiations to take it over withdrew from the process.

A protest was held outside the Portadown Medical Centre to raise concerns of the ongoing issues.
