An update on your surgery and our plans for the future
We are really pleased to be in the process of taking the first steps towards merging with two other local practices. On completion of the merger there would be a choice of permanent GPs (both male and female) with whom our patients may consult at any one of three local sites (including Fenstanton).
Although we would still need to apply to close our premises at Northcote House, Fenstanton Surgery will be open for morning and afternoon clinics with both a doctor and a nurse Monday to Friday and occasionally on Saturday mornings.
This, we feel, is a very positive move for us and our patients as it will ensure continuity of care and in fact will enable us to increase the services we currently offer. It will also have the effect of making all three practices much more resilient and able to cope with the demands of the constantly evolving NHS.
We therefore would like to reassure you that our current services will still be available at Northcote House for at least the next few months. If our application to close Northcote House is approved then our services will not only be offered at Fenstanton but at two other locations in the local area. We will keep you updated with further details about the merger as they become available.
Should you have any questions about the above please do not hesitate to contact the practice manager, Jenny Parker, via the surgery or our patient group via firstname.lastname@example.org . You can also contact your local Healthwatch by phone on 01480 420628 or by email email@example.com
