Responding to local media coverage relating to a proposal to develop GP services as part of a potential rebuild of Woking Football Club, a spokesperson for NHS North West Surrey CCG, said: 

"At this time the CCG is not involved in detailed discussions with the developers leading this project and we understand that proposals are at a very early stage. We remain committed to exploring opportunities to improve local services for the people of Woking, including access to GP care, and this will be done in collaboration with our partners and local people."

In September 2019 the CCG formally lodged an appeal against the planning decision of Elmbridge Borough Council to refuse the change of use of the empty Burwood Ward to house Fort House GP surgery.

East Surrey partners became part of the Surrey Heartlands Integrated Care System (ICS) in July 2019. At the same time, East Surrey CCG and the three Surrey Heartlands CCGs (Guildford and Waverley, North West Surrey and Surrey Downs) have been developing plans to merge from 1 April 2020. We have now received conditional approval from NHS England/Improvement to proceed with creating a new organisation.

In June this year the Governing Bodies of all four CCGs (East Surrey, Guildford & Waverley, North West Surrey and Surrey Downs) agreed to explore a potential merger to create one commissioning organisation across Surrey Heartlands from April 2020.  Following extensive engagement over the past few months, member practices have now voted on whether they approve a new Constitution for the proposed CCG. 

NHS North West Surrey Clinical Commissioning Group is currently appealing the planning decision made earlier this year by Elmbridge Borough Council regarding the change of use of Burwood Ward at Walton Community Hospital.  The original application was to change the use of the empty ward to house Fort House GP surgery which has outgrown its current premises in Hersham Road.
