Proposed Merger between Spring Hall Medical Practice, Queens Road Surgery and Southowram Surgery
We need your views
Spring Hall Medical Practice would like to merge with Queens Road and Southowram Surgeries. We want to know what your views on this are so we can make a decision.
What is a merger?
A merger would mean that the three GP practices would work as one. The GPs of all of practices would work together and share the same staff and the same buildings. The patients from both practices will still be able to stay registered with the practice.
Why do we think we need to merge?
The practice believes that a merger will improve services for both patients and staff. By merging the two practices together there will be more doctors with different expertise that can help with your medical complaints. The merger will allow the use of four sites, which will increase access to a GP, this includes bilingual and female GP’s.
The merger will help staff such as Nurses, Health Care Assistants and pharmacists to work together. The practices will have a chance to work together to manage functions in the office to ensure safe and efficient processes.
By joining with Queens’s road and Southowram Surgery it will help us to build a better future. Helping GPs to support each other, looking at new ways of working and supporting things like specialist clinics, joint injections, minor surgery, diabetes, dermatology, sexual health and contraception services.
We need your views

You can also ask for a printed survey to be sent to you or collect from the surgery. We can also support anyone to complete a survey over the telephone by contacting Salima Begum

What if I have more questions?
If you have any questions or comments regarding this please speak to Tracy Worrall by contacting the practice on: 01422 349501
How will I know when a decision has been made?
Once we have the feedback from the survey we will put in an application to NHS Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) who buy healthcare services for local people in Calderdale. We will keep you updated on any decisions with a notice in the practice and on the website.
