Burton & Bransgore Medical Centres’ and The Orchard Surgery Partners are very pleased to announce that a merger is progressing between the two Practices
(Now also to include The Barn Surgery - see below).
CHRISTCHURCH MEDICAL PRACTICE
This merger will enable these two excellent surgeries to enhance their services for all our patients in Christchurch, Burton and Bransgore areas. In this current climate smaller surgeries are not sustainable and merging will allow us to become more robust with a larger number and more variety of highly skilled staff who will be able to serve our patient needs more efficiently and effectively in safe familiar environments.
If you have any queries, there is a form at your surgery reception that you can complete for GP and Management to answer. There are no plans to close any of the existing surgeries.
19th June 2017: Further to the patient events about the merger of Burton & Bransgore with Orchard, Drs Richard Jenkinson and Jo White are also very pleased to advise that in the last week they have agreed that Barn Surgery will also join the merger, still planned to take place by 1 October 2017.
The inclusion of the Barn practice means that there will be even greater capacity for the merged practice to create plans that will improve the sustainability of all the practices. With a larger number and more variety of highly skilled staff, patient needs will be served more efficiently and effectively in safe, familiar environments.
We would like to reassure patients that services will continue in all current sites and we will shortly be holding some patient events where they are able to find out more. Drs Jenkinson & White, on behalf of Burton and Bransgore and Orchard Partners.
