PROPOSED MERGER BETWEEN WHITCHURCH, WING AND NORDEN HOUSE SURGERIES

Posted on July 31st, 2019

Whitchurch, Wing and Norden House Surgeries are proposing to merge on 1 April 2020. The partnership between these surgeries will be known as 3W Health, however the existing surgeries names will remain the same.

We are sure you are aware that over the past few years there have been increased pressures placed upon General Practice services. All three surgeries have been performing well and have had ‘good’ recent Care Quality Commission ratings. In order to enhance the services we currently provide, we feel that the best way forward is to merge.

All three surgeries share the same commitment to quality and by merging we will be able to share working arrangements and offer improved services to patients.

We have a growing population with increasingly complex healthcare needs. Merging our practices will make us more resilient, giving us a larger pool of staff to draw from, and allow us to work toward bringing services from hospital into the community for the convenience of patients. It will also give us the opportunity to reduce some of our overhead costs due to economies of scale.

Our doctors, practice nurses and other staff will continue to be available to patients under the proposed new arrangements in the same way as they are at present. Due to the size of the area covered by our practices, there are no plans to close buildings.

Patient registration would not be affected and you would not need to do anything should you wish to stay registered with the proposed new practice. Following the proposed merger, you would have the choice of being seen at any of the three surgery sites or continuing to use your current practice only, as you do now.

We are proud of our practices and the personal care we have maintained over the years and have always been encouraged by the positive feedback and support of our patients. By uniting as one like-minded team we can continue to provide this high quality care in a way that allows us to thrive in the future, making best use of available resources, developing new services and providing seamless care for all of our patients.

We understand that you may have questions and comments about the proposal to merge and we intend to listen to your thoughts in a number of ways:

  • We have answered some of the questions we think you may have on a list of FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) and these can be found on all three websites:

Wing Surgery 3W FAQ

www.nordenhousesurgery.co.uk

www.whitchurchsurgery.co.uk

  • We will hold drop in sessions and members of the team will be available to listen to your comments and answer questions. These sessions are currently being planned and will be publicised in due course.
  • Updates will be added to the practice websites as and when they are known and will be displayed in our waiting rooms.
  • If you have any specific queries or concerns please write to Noel Ratcliffe at Norden House surgery, Avenue Rd, Winslow, Bucks, MK18 3DW , or email 3w.merger@nhs.net

Yours faithfully,

 

Dr Beth Peel, Dr Rodger Dickson, Dr Joseph Rizzo-Naudi, Dr Diana Straker, Dr Sara Ronaghy, Dr Ruth Mason, Dr Chris Davies & Dr Satheesh Ramasamy.
