You may recall that earlier this year we announced our intention to merge with Ocean Health. Our goal was to establish a larger practice to help strengthen patient services for the long term.
A spokesperson for Beacon Medical Group said: “Unfortunately the merger will not proceed, primarily because of staffing issues. Both practices are disappointed that their positive efforts to merge have not resulted in success.
“In the meantime, patients will be unaffected by this decision and our practices will continue to run as normal. Patients still have access to our full range of safe and responsive services, based on their clinical needs, delivered by our existing frontline GPs and staff.”
