Consultation with patients regarding the proposed merger of: Davaar medical Centre and The Hollies Surgery
We are starting a formal consultation about the possibility of merging Davaar Medical Centre and The Hollies Surgery into one practice.
The two practices will still remain at their current location.
The two practices have started working closely together. However, because the practices are still separate, patients have not been able to take advantage of the wider range of services and extended opening hours available across both practices.
If the practice proposal to merge is successful we will continue to operate from the two existing premises and patients would be able to choose which site they want to attend for an appointment. All patients would also have access to the full range of services and extended opening hours available across both premises.
The aim of the merger is therefore to:-
- Improve the overall range and quality of services to all patients
- Improve access to services, with longer opening hours to meet the needs of patients
- Improve access to more clinical staff for patients
- Improve patient choice, increasing GP availability and the number of female and male GPs
- Improve continuity of care for patients so that it is easier to see the same clinical member of staff
Next Steps - tell us your views
The formal consultation to obtain your views on the proposed merger will start from 1St March 2016 for a 31 day period ending on 31st march 2016
Patients who have registered for our text service will receive a message signposting them to the practice or website for further information. We will write to our vulnerable patients, informing them of the proposal and detailing how to have their say. For all other patients leaflets including Frequently Asked Questions sheets (FAQs) and the survey will be available at both practices. These can also be downloaded below.
