Proposed merger of Field Road Health Centre with Earlston Road Medical Centre
NHS Wirral CCG has commenced a consultation on the proposed merger of Field Road Medical Practice in Wallasey with Earlston Road Medical Centre.
Field Road Health Centre is part of a group of GP Practices called Miriam Primary Care Group which includes the following:
- Miriam Medical Centre, Birkenhead Medical Building – Laird St, Birkenhead
- Earlston Medical Centre, Earlston Road, Wallasey
- Field Road Health Centre, Field Road, Wallasey
GP services from Field Road Health Centre have been closed to direct patient access since March 2020. The merger would result in the majority of patients being transferred to Earlston Medical Centre although patients currently registered at Field Road would have the choice of seeing clinicians at any of the premises within Miriam Primary Care Group or re-registering at another practice of their choice. If approved, the merger would take place in the spring of 2021.
The consultation will run from Tuesday 8 December 2020 to Wednesday 6 January 2021, with NHS Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group seeking views of this proposal before the CCG decide on the application in January 2021.

Please note that any submissions made after the deadline of 6 January 2021 (including the online survey) will not be accepted.
