What will this mean to you, as our patient?

  • Better access and more staff available to take your calls.
  • Choice of appointments across both sites: Beechwood Avenue and Holdenhurst Road.
  • Increased number of male and female GPs to choose from.

We very much believe that the time is right to merge as it will ensure we are in a strong position to meet the demands of a changing and challenged NHS system, ensuring we have a sustainable service going forward. Across the UK, practices are modifying how Primar.y Care Services are provided in order to meet rising patient numbers and health complexities. For many years we have had a strong working relationship with our new Partners; sharing the same ethos towards patients and a strong desire to improve local healthcare services. Working at scale enables us to continually improve services whilst providing a high-quality and lifelong service to our patients. We believe this is a real opportunity to work collaboratively and offer excellent NHS care and additional Enhanced Services to our patients. We believe it will offer better access, wider choice and a skill-mix of clinicians to ensure timely and appropriate care for all. As we continue to strive to deliver a high level of service to you all, we hope to win your support for this exciting project.
