A THREATENED surgery has received a boost after Oxfordshire's primary care provider revealed it had received significant interest from other GP practices for running a branch surgery.

Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (OCCG) wrote to practices across the county last month and has received 'more than one' expression of interest for running a branch surgery at Cogges Surgery, in Witney.

OCCG will now put together a selection process for these applications.

The surgery, which serves 7,700 patients, could close if no solution is found by January.
