In December 2014, Church Street surgery merged with five other GP surgeries in Wyre Forest; Bewdley Medical Centre, Stourport Health Centre, Hagley Surgery, York House Medical Centre, and in December 2015, Kidderminster Medical Centre joined the partnership.
The new organisation is called Wyre Forest Health Partnership and has over 50 doctors and in excess of 200 staff looking after more than 73, 000 patients. Wyre Forest Health Partnership was formed to enable the GPs and staff in each of the sites to keep traditional primary care values but in a new structure that improves and protects GPs and patient care into the future.
There are no plans to reduce sites, and patients registered here will continue to contact the surgery as before.
Wyre Forest Health Partnership values patient opinion. A Patient Representative now sits on the Partnership Board, which oversees the smooth running of the organisation. The Partners believe it is important that the patients’ opinions should be included at the centre of the Partnership’s decision making.
Wyre Forest Health Partnership will also continue to work with the Patient Groups at each site, to obtain patient and carer opinion about our services. http://www.wyreforesthealthpartnership.co.uk/#
