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.
