Proposed Merger of Norwood House Surgery and Trafalgar Medical Practice on 1st May 2014
The main reasons for this are so that we can increase the range and quality of services that we can offer to all our patients by combining the skills and resources of high calibre doctors and staff at both practices, and so we can see our patients in a modern, purpose-built building that has much better accessibility and facilities than we can provide here.
This merger would bring together ten GPs into one single team - making it the largest team of established GPs within Scarborough and the surrounding area. We believe it is important that patients can have continuity by seeing their usual GP whenever possible and this merger would enable us to achieve this ambition for our patients.
We are also proposing to close Norwood House Surgery and relocate to Trafalgar Medical Practice's current premises at 41-44 Trafalgar Street West so that we can see our patients in a modern, purpose-built building that has much better accessibility and facilities than we can currently offer here. Trafalgar Street West is 0.2 miles from Norwood House Surgery, there is a bus stop within a minute's walk of its entrance, and free parking is available close by.
As part of bringing the two surgeries together, we are also proposing to change the times the surgery is available to patients to 8.00am - 8.00pm on a Monday, and 8.00am - 6.00pm from Tuesday to Friday; doors will be open from 8.30am but before that you can telephone the surgery.
The views of our patients are very important to us and a final decision will not be made until you have had the chance to tell us what you think. Please use the This is My View form (also available in the surgery and on our website) to tell us what you think - or you can email us at email@example.com instead. Please include your full name and year of birth in the email so we can verify that you are one of our patients.
Please let us have your view by Thursday 3rd April 2014.
We look forward to hearing from you.
