We wanted to thank all of our patients for taking the time to provide feedback regarding the proposed merger of St Heliers Medical Practice and Dr Ali & Partners practice within Northfield Health Centre.
The consultation finished at the end of December, the majority of the feedback was positive. We have however noted patients’ views and comments and will ensure that these are taken into account if we are able to move forward with the proposed merger.
We have now submitted the business case application to the Birmingham & Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (BSOL CCG). The case will be presented to the CCG’s Primary Care Committee on the 12 February. The CCG has been very supportive of our proposals to date so we hope that we will receive the final approval on the 12 February. We will update the website with details after this date and will continue to liaise with the Patient Participation Groups from both practices.
