Planned merger of Oakfield Medical Practice and Linthorpe Surgery
We are planning to merge the two practices into one single practice, which will retain the name of Linthorpe Surgery. Linthorpe Surgery is currently a nine-partner practice (5 male and 4 female GPs) with a list size of about 15,000 patients. Oakfield Medical Practice will become a branch surgery of Linthorpe Surgery.
The proposed date for the merger will be 1st October 2017. Should the practice proposal to merge be successful, we will continue to operate from the two existing premises and patients will be able to choose which site they want to attend for an appointment.
All nurses and doctors will work across both sites. Patients will continue to have access to the full range of services and extended opening hours across both practices. We feel this will offer better access to a greater choice of clinicians.
We are committed to keeping all that is good and most valued about both practices whilst maximising the benefits from working within a larger organisation.
Your views are important to us and we would welcome your feedback. Please click on the link below to complete a short questionnaire.
A patient consultation event will be held at each practice. These will provide an opportunity to come along and hear more from the staff and doctors about the merger as well as telling us your views and any concerns you might have.
Refreshments will be provided at both events.
The dates for the consultation events are:
Thursday 29th June 5pm – 6pm
At Oakfield Medical Practice, North Ormesby Health Village, 1 Trinity Mews, North Ormesby, Middlesbrough TS3 6AL
Monday 3rd July 1pm – 2pm
At Linthorpe Surgery, 378 Linthorpe Road, Middlesbrough TS5 5HA
Please do get involved and let us know what you think. The closing date for the consultation and feedback is 24th July 2017.
