Introducing Lakeside Healthcare Stamford
Thank you for taking part in our recent consultation about merging the patient lists at St Mary’s Medical Centre, Sheepmarket Surgery and The Little Surgery to create one practice in Stamford.
The consultation ended on 1 May 2017 and the feedback has been reviewed and analysed and discussed with NHS England and South Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group.
We are pleased to advise that our application has been approved. This means that we will now be able to merge our patient lists and work as one practice in Stamford. Our new practice will be called Lakeside Healthcare Stamford.
Between now and when the official merger process is completed on 22 November 2017 there will be a period of operational change.
The Sheepmarket Surgery and St Mary’s Medical Centre will merge their clinical systems on 8 August 2017. Subject to this being successful, from 9 August 2017 patients will be registered with Lakeside Healthcare Stamford. The Little Surgery will not be affected by this change.
On 21 September 2017, The Little Surgery will move over to the same clinical system as Lakeside Healthcare Stamford. The Little Surgery building will close at 18:30pm on 21 September 2017 and the practice will relocate to the Sheepmarket Surgery site, reopening here at 08:00am on 22 September 2017. Little Surgery patients will still be registered with The Little Surgery and will be able to access their services from both Lakeside Healthcare Stamford sites (Sheepmarket Surgery or St Mary’s Medical Centre).
On 22 November 2017, The Little Surgery will merge its clinical system with Lakeside Healthcare Stamford. Subject to this being successful, from 23 November 2017 these patients will also be registered with Lakeside Healthcare Stamford.
This will complete the merger process. All Lakeside Healthcare Stamford patients will then access their services from the Sheepmarket Surgery or St Mary’s Medical Centre sites.
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
