Providing the best possible healthcare for our patients is a priority for us. In order to meet the standards required for primary care, both now and in the future, we are in discussions over an option to move to a new health and wellbeing centre on the Bournville Village Trust estate.
The relocation could see Granton Medical Centre, along with Griffins Brook and Bunbury Road Surgery (BG Health), move from three sites to a single purpose-built medical centre by 2020.
The approximate walking distances from the existing surgeries to the new site are:
- Granton Medical Centre – 1.4 miles
- Griffins Brook Medical Centre – 0.3 miles
- Bunbury Road Surgery – 0.9 miles.
We are committed to ensuring that patients have access to high-quality, local primary care services and the current sites are either not fit for purpose or do not generally meet the current standards we would expect for a GP surgery.
By moving we would be able to offer our patients modern facilities in a “neighbourhood hub”, allowing integration with other local primary care services such as mental health counsellors, district nurses, physiotherapists, health trainers and Back to Work support workers, as well as additional car parking.
We are giving patients the opportunity to discuss the plans with us and give us their views, either by attending one of the drop-in sessions below, or by filling in an online survey. You can also ask for a copy of the survey from reception.
The closing date for survey responses is Friday 28 September 2018.
