Primary Care Services at TG Medical Centre
14 January 2019
TG Medical has been providing primary care services at TG Medical Centre in West Kirby since 1st October 2013, the contract was time limited and due to expire on 31st March 2019. NHS commissioners have been seeking a provider to continue delivering the services from 1st April 2019. Following a recent procurement process, Marine Lake Medical Practice has been appointed as the new provider of primary care medical services at TG Medical Centre.
NHS England (Cheshire and Merseyside) and NHS Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are responsible for the contracts for all General Practice services across Wirral as joint commissioners of these services. It is the aim of commissioners to ensure that all communities have access to the highest quality GP services possible.
Our aim is to ensure that patients are not affected by the change of provider and NHS England (Cheshire and Merseyside), NHS Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), TG Medical and Marine Lake Medical Practice are working together to make the transition as smooth and easy as possible.
It has come to our attention that a local on-line website has incorrectly reported today that TG Medical Centre will be closing and that patients will be required to register with another practice. This is not the case and the media organisation has been asked to rectify the reporting.
We want to assure patients that TG Medical Centre is not closing and there is no requirement to re-register with another practice, services will continue to be provided at TG Medical Centre by Marine Lake Medical Practice.
