Dear Yaxley Group Practice Patients,

 

We write to inform you about a development at the Practice.  You may have heard in the press that both locally and nationally there are moves for General Practice to begin ‘working at scale’ in larger groups.  It is hoped this will help Practices cope with the challenging and changing local healthcare environment.

 

With this in mind we have been considering the Practice’s options over some time.  After a period of due diligence we now write to inform you of our intent to merge Yaxley Group Practice with Lakeside Healthcare Group from 1st January 2018.  Lakeside is a group of Practices based out of Corby, Kettering and Rushden originally, and now including local Practices at Oundle and Stamford. 

We believe that this is the best option for the Practice to safeguard its future with the challenges that we currently face.  We aim to continue to deliver high quality care, continue in our tradition of innovation and add to the services that we can deliver to our patients locally.  We hope to continue to be a voice for our patients within the local healthcare economy.

 

We are extremely proud of the traditions of Yaxley Group Practice and the standard of care and access that we offer.   For you, our patients, we do not envisage any immediate changes to the services that we deliver or your experience here at the Practice. There are no planned changes to our dedicated team that look after you.

 

Yours sincerely

 

The Partners

Yaxley Group Practice
