Patient Consultation - Merger with BL Medical Practice
Thank you to all our patients who took the time to complete our recent patient consultation. Key outcomes will be published here soon.
Since Archways and Dr Chanda came together in 2012 to form Archwood Medical Practice the complexity of running a surgery has continued to increase.
We continually review how we work to ensure that we can continue to offer our patients a high level of service and care.
We believe a key way to ensure that we are in a position to meets patients’ needs in the longer term is by growing the practice. For this reason we are currently in discussions with our neighbours, BL Medical Practice, about a merger.
There are many aspects that create a good ‘fit’ between the two practices including, the philosophy of the Partners, how the practices operate, our staff and of course physical location.
The partners at BL Medical, Dr Ghafoor and Dr Raje, would both join the new entity and Dr. Raje and their Practice Manager have worked for Archwood Medical Practice previously.
We don’t anticipate any disadvantages to a potential merger and feel that as patients you will benefit from;
- Access to a larger team of Clinicians with more flexibility of appointments
- The potential to develop a wider range of services for you
- Sharing of expertise in specific areas
- Ongoing care from Dr Parker, Dr Chanda, Dr Fitton & Dr Begley and our nursing team
We welcome any feedback from our patients regarding this exciting venture.
Both practices are committed to taking your views into account and to take the time to manage the process carefully towards a target launch date of 1st July 2019.
Drs Parker, Chanda & the team
