Still time to have your say as two Aylesbury GP practices plan merger

Patients of Berryfields Medical Centre and Meadowcroft Surgery in Aylesbury still have time to share their views on plans for the two GP practices to merge later this year.

The merger is planned to take effect from 1 April 2022, creating the Berrycroft Community Health Centre (BCHC) from the existing practices. Patients have until 9 March to give their feedback, and partners from the practices are keen to hear from as many people as possible.

The partners at Berryfields and Meadowcroft believe that this merger will be the best way to continue to offer patients an innovative, sustainable, high quality service into the future. As many patients will be aware, the two practices have worked very closely together for some years and will be moving into a new building in Martin Dalby Way later this year – this is likely to be before the end of the summer. Until then, both surgeries will remain open as usual and patients will be able to access services in the same ways.

GP Partner Dr Clayton said: “We are still very eager to hear the views of any and all of our patients about our planned merger. If you have any thoughts you would like to share with us, or questions you would like to have answered, please let us know via any of the methods listed below, by 9 March.

“This is a really exciting time for us at Berryfields and Meadowcroft, and we think this merger will help us to provide the best possible services for our patients in the future. Merging our practices will give us more staff with a wider range of expertise. It will help us bring more services from a hospital setting out into the community, making them more convenient for patients to access.”

To share your views, please feel free to contact the practices in the following ways:
