Seven day services in Primary Care (closed)

Thursday, 15 June - Governing Body decision outcomes

Herefordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has agreed not to recommission a walk-in service at the Asda GP Access Centre in Hereford.

At its public meeting yesterday (Thursday 15 June 2017), the CCG’s Governing Body approved a decision not to renew the contract for the Nestor-Primecare Services walk-in centre, based at the Asda GP Access Centre from the end of July 2017.

Instead, proposals were agreed that the Ross Road branch of Moorfield House Surgery and the primary care access hub (currently provided by Taurus Healthcare at Wargrave House Surgery in Hereford) will be relocated to the Asda GP Access Centre site.

The aim of this is to strengthen GP services in the South-Wye area of the city and forms part of a larger county-wide programme to deliver high quality primary care across Herefordshire.

Local NHS leaders are seeking the views of the public over the future of GP services in Hereford City.

A consultation into a number of proposed changes is launched today (3 March, 2017) and closes on Monday 24th April, 2017.

These proposals are designed to ensure that the Clinical Commissioning Group can secure the very best services for patients, who should expect the same high quality of care seven days a week.

Have your say and complete the survey here

We are therefore proposing to:

  • Change the current GP Access Centre (walk-in centre) next to Asda into a dedicated GP practice by relocating the Ross Road branch of the City’s Moorfield House Surgery, ensuring there are accessible primary care services with good transport links and parking;
  • Relocate the seven-day service currently provided by Taurus Healthcare at Wargrave House Surgery on St Owen Street to the Asda site. This means there will be a primary care service for people registered with Moorfield House Surgery from 8am – 8pm seven days a week. In addition everybody registered with all other Herefordshire’s practices will be able to book appointments from 6.00pm – 8.30pm Monday to Friday and from 8am – 8pm at weekends and on bank holidays;
  • Encourage and support people across Herefordshire to register with a GP Practice so that they can benefit from the best possible, continuous care. We will develop a plan to improve access to GP services for people who find registering with a GP difficult.

Full detail on the proposals and a downloadable version of the questionnaire are available on this page below. Come along to one of our events to find out more and have your say.
