Merger Update (April 1st 2020)
We have even more exciting news!
Today we merged the NHS contracts for services provided at Allerton and Westfield Medical Centre sites.
As per our previous communications patients will see little or no change as a direct result of this -
especially as changes to services at the moment are being driven by our response to COVID-19.
We will be merging our Clinical Systems on April 22nd and 23rd so that we can see medical records and offer appointments to patients across both sites.
Thanks again for your patience and understanding whilst we juggle this transition during the challenges of the current situation.
Please note Westfield phone lines (and clinical system) will be TEMPORARILY out of order for around two hours on Thursday April 16th 12.30-2.30pm due to essential maintenance work. Please call back after these times and we will be happy to assist you.
If it’s a medical EMERGENCY please call 111 or 999.
Thank you for your patience and understanding and apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Merger Update (February 19th 2020)
We have exciting news!
We have now had official approval to proceed with our merger plans from our Commissioners and all the relevant Boards -
(Primary Care Commissioning Group, Professional Standards Oversight Group and Primary Care Oversight Group).
We will be merging the NHS contracts on April 1st 2020 but as per our previous communications patients will see little or no change on this day.
We will be merging our clinical systems (computer systems containing patient medical records and appointment rotas) on April 23rd 2020.
After this date patients will be able to access appointments at either site (but the choice will still be yours as to who you see and where).
We will also communicate any further improvements with patients as we progress with our plans.
Our Doctors and Staff across both sites are working really hard to use this opportunity to improve patients services and experience.
Please can we ask for your continued understanding and patience during this transition period and thank you again for your support.
