Many of our patients will already be aware that a soft merger of Abbey Lane Surgery and Totley Rise Medical Practice took place in April 2018. We have now informed Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) of our intention to progress to a full practice merger which is planned for April 2021.
We believe that a full merger is now the best option for the future, especially given the challenges both practices have experienced during the Covid pandemic and the effect this has had on the provision of GP services. We have informed our Patient Participation Group of our intentions.
A full practice merger will be subject to final approval by NHS England and Sheffield CCG.
Please see the following questions that have been prepared to assist all our patients with any queries they may have.
Thank you for your continued support.
Dr Annie Majoka and the Management team.
