The Restoration of Human Rights (ROHR) in Zimbabwe was formed in 2007 out of the need for the Zimbabwe Vigil to have an organisation on the ground in Zimbabwe to reflect the Vigil’s mission statement to fight for human rights and true democracy (free and fair elections) in Zimbabwe. ROHR is a non-political organisation committed to educating people to achieve real change in the form of justice, peace and freedom in Zimbabwe.

The Willows Medical Centre in Church Street, Carlton will be temporarily closed after a visit by the Care Quality Commission last Monday.

Inspectors visited the surgery and took immediate action to close it. It will remain closed until further notice during which time the surgery cannot provide any appointments or repeat prescriptions.

A spokesperson for the service said: "The CQC is taking action to protect the safety welfare of patients at The Willows Medical Centre, on Church Street, Carlton, Nottingham, following an inspection in Monday (6 June).

"Inspectors visited the surgery following concerns that had been raised and, as a result, urgent enforcement action is being taken. CQC is working closely with Nottingham North and East CCG and NHS England to ensure any patients of the surgery have access to GP services.

"While our legal processes do not allow us to go into further detail at this time, we will publish a full report of our findings in due course. Any action CQC takes is open to appeal."

The findings of the inspection will be published at a later date.

From Monday any patients who need an appointment will need to contact either Peacock Healthcare in Carlton Hill, Park House Medical Centre on Burton Road or Netherfield Centre on Forester Street.

All patients registered with the medical centre will be sent a letter advising of the closure; any patients with appointments this week will be contacted by telephone.

Sam Walters, Chief Officer, Nottingham North and East CCG, which commissions services for patients in the area, said they would do their best to ensure patients can still get appointments.

She said: "As commissioners of GP services in Gedling, our priority is ensuring patients affected by this closure have access to high quality, safe and compassionate care.

"To enable this, we will support Park House, Peacock and Netherfield to ensure they have the capacity and GP provision to meet patients' needs.

"We are working closely with the CQC and NHS England team to address the issues highlighted in the CQC inspection. If patients wish to discuss any concerns regarding the surgery closure they should contact our Patient Experience Team on 0800 028 3693, selecting option two."

The centre has been at the centre of protests over the past year as well -by the Zimbabwe Vigil and Restoration of Human Rights -Zimbabwe.

The surgery was visited by protestors after GP Sylvester Nyatsuro was accused of seizing land from Zimbabwean tobacco farmers.

Dr Nyatsuro says the land lawfully belongs to him and his wife, Veronica, and rejects allegations that he has taken it as part of Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe's controversial redistribution scheme.

A spokesperson for the surgery was unavailable for comment.
