Highlands Health Centre and Beacon Medical Group merger
We are pleased to announce that we have been given formal NHS approval to merge as practices from the 1st October 2018. We think this is a great opportunity for our teams to come together to support all of the patients of Ivybridge.
We have been working behind the scenes to make sure any changes happen as smoothly as possible. Highlands Health Centre will always be called Highlands Health Centre in recognition of the contribution of the founding partners but over time patients will see more and more references to Beacon Medical Group on signage or in literature.
One of the biggest expected changes in October will be a new urgent care team which will handle all of the on the day queries for the Ivybridge area. Look out for posters and leaflets about this new service in the coming weeks.
Also, to make sure that we have GP cover throughout the week some of the Ivybridge team will be working on site at Highlands.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact Claire Oatway, from Beacon Medical Group or Vicky Opie from Highlands Health Centre.
