Our two practices have been working closely together successfully for a number of years and the GP Partners are hoping to build on this success by becoming one Practice next year. They will maintain their current buildings and patients will retain the same named GP, whilst having the flexibility to access additional services at either of the two sites.
Why the GP Partners are looking at merger
The decision to look at this has been taken after careful consideration to help ensure consistent high quality care, in order to improve and future-proof safe, effective and sustainable primary care for the local population.
Dr Adrian Rees,
“This is a positive move and one we feel is right to ensure future viability and to protect and enhance patient services. Yeadon Tarn Medical Practice has recently had two partners reach retirement age and Rawdon Surgery has one partner retiring early next year. We chose to take this opportunity to make both practices stronger, successful and viable for primary care in the coming decades.”
