Update on changes to practice membership at Octagon Medical Practice

 

Octagon Medical Practice has agreed to review its membership and to reconfigure into smaller practice groups. These discussions are being supported by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I).

 

The proposed practice groupings were submitted to the CCG and NHSE&I for consideration and have now been approved, along with a timeline for managing the changes.

 

The expected timeline for the creation of the new practice groupings is below:

 

1. Park Medical Centre 

9,900

June 2021

 

2. Bretton Medical Practice

12,000

August 2021

 

3. Hodgson Medical Centre and Nene Valley Medical Centre

19,400

October 2021

 

4. Thomas Walker Medical Centre (includes the former Huntley Grove Practice and Minster Medical Practice) and Westgate Surgery

27,700

December 2021

 

5. Thorney and Eye Medical Practice, and Jenner Health Centre (to be known as “Jenner Healthcare”)

16,000

December 2021

 

A detailed project plan is being developed to ensure a smooth transition to the new groupings.

 

None of the current surgery sites will close as part of this process and patients will continue to have access to the services they do currently.

 

We will continue to share updates during the transition. If you would like to be added to the distribution list or if you have any questions please email capccg.contact@nhs.net
