You may be aware of significant strains and pressures the NHS is currently facing and of how the NHS forward view is looking at new ways for Practices to work more collaboratively.
Over the past months we have been in preparing plans of an acquisition due to Dunninc Road's GP retiring at the end of December 2019. We will still work over both sites but become one entity which will be able to create an opportunity for more recruitment and expertise, which in turn will mean we can give a more diverse and comprehensive care for our patient populations.
The commencement of the practices joining will start 1st January 2020, which will see our teams join together and work across both sites and an increase of workforce.
You do not need to take any action and will be able to access your GP surgery in the normal way.
Patients of both surgeries will be sent a survey over the next couple of weeks to complete via text (if you have consented to SMS) or they will be available via paper form in the Reception areas. We would appreciate as many responses as possible.
We are hosting Patient Consultations Meetings which will include a presentation followed by a question and answer session on the below dates:
- Patients of The Health Care Surgery: Thursday 10th October 1pm, 2pm and 3pm at The Health Care Surgery
- Patients of Dunninc Road Surgery: Wednesday 16th October 5:30pm at Shiregreen Neighbourhood Centre
