We are pleased to let you know that we are working closely with the Old Farm Surgery just down the road. For example, we have the same Practice Manager, Colin Whitford, and we are sharing a Paramedic (Ryan) who is helping with visits, as well as sharing some GP and Nurse resources and administrative support.
The NHS is constantly changing, and part of this are significant financial cuts, so we are doing this in order to ensure the long term sustainability of General Practice in this area.
