Merger with Bosworth Medical Centre
We are pleased to inform our patients that Chester Road Surgery and Bosworth Medical Centre have now merged as of 6th July 2021.
Chester Road Surgery will become a branch of Bosworth Medical Centre.
We are proud of our practice and the personal care we have maintained over the years and have always been touched by the positive feedback and support from our patients. We are pleased that our teams will be uniting and will continue to provide care for you.
Our vision is to deliver an efficient healthcare service to meet the changing needs of our local population. We aim to improve access for our patients so that they are able to see a Clinician with the right expertise to deal with their problem. We feel the best way of achieving this is through innovative working with collaboration of staff with a mix of different skills.
We hope you will find the following information helpful in answering some questions you have.
Why are you merging practices?
As we are sure you are aware in recent years, there has been increased pressure placed upon General Practice, with a growing population, the growth in patients with long term conditions and the need to move more work from hospitals into the community. General Practice needs to expand and innovate to absorb this increased workload and strain. We believe that the best way to offer our patients a safe, caring, sustainable and quality service into the future is by a merger.
What does the merger mean for patients?
· Improvements to the overall range and quality of services to patients.
· Improved access to more clinical staff for patients.
· Improved patient choice and increased GP and nurse availability.
How will this merger affect my care?
· There will be no reduction or detrimental effect to the services that you receive.
· You can continue to see the same doctors and nurses that you see at the moment.
· We will continue to operate at our current address.
· You will have a wider choice of which doctor to see.
How will you provide enough appointments?
The practice team will regularly review the number of available appointments, GP and nurse appointments will not be reduced.
Do I need to re-register with my GP?
You will not need to do anything; the merger has no effect on your registration and your entitlement to NHS care. if you do not wish to remain with the merged practice you are free at any time to register with another GP practice, provided you live within their catchment area.
