Practice Update – MERGER


GPs from both Mercheford House and Riverside have decided that in the best interest patients, and to able to offer a better service for all our patients we will be merging to form a new General Practice which will based here at the Riverside Practice.  Riverside was originally designed to offer services to 16000 patient and we currently have 8500 registered.  


Both surgeries are sure that the merger is the correct option not just for the patients but also the staff.  It will provide a much more sustainable and resilient practice as we move forward in the ever changing National Health Service.  We are expecting that the timescale will be 12-18 months.  The application to NHS England is only just in progress, so we will not have any further details probably for a couple of months. But we wanted our patients and staff to be aware.  


In the meantime we will of course keep you updated.  Please direct any queries to the practice manager or email
