PATIENT UPDATE JANUARY 2019
Earlier this year, St Lukes and Greenswood Medical Centre, as part of Symphony Healthcare Services formed a close partnership with Mayfield Medical Centres during a period of staff sickness and has been able to provide essential support through a range of both clinical and non-clinical staff. The ongoing support provided by Mayfield Medical Centres over the past few months has enabled the smooth day-to-day running of healthcare services and has ensured that patients have continued to receive a high quality service at St Lukes and Greenswood.
We are pleased to announce that, as a result of the success of this partnership, on Tuesday 01 January 2019, Mayfield Medical Centres will become the permanent contract holder for the provision of Primary Care services at St Lukes and Greenswood Medical Centre. There are no immediate changes and patients do not need to take any action. You will be able to contact the surgery in the usual way.
We are confident, that by joining together with Mayfield Medical Centres, the practice team and patients of St Lukes will benefit from the support of a larger clinical team and local network of GP practices in the Brixham and Paignton area. Additional patient services are also now available within three treatment rooms at Brixham Hospital and at Mayfield Medical Centre, Cherrybrook Square, Hookhills, Paignton.
If you have any questions or queries please contact the Practice Manager, via: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to all our patients for their ongoing support.
