The Wye Valley Surgery will be relocating at the end of April. It will be moved to the same building as the Wycombe Urgent Treatment Centre.
The 2 main reasons they are leaving are:
- The lease on the Wye Valley practice premises ended in 2017.
- The practice wants more space so to give its patients the best care.
Many locations were considered, including some in the town centre, and the possibility of building a new premises. However, after much consideration, the practice will be moving to Wycombe General Hospital. The practice will be in the same building as the Urgent Treatment Centre and the GP Out of Hours service.
Bucks CCG has supported the decision to move to this location. They are excited by the prospect that this could lead to the hospital providing a wider range of primary and community services in the future. It could also mean more joined up care between health and social care.
The move will be taking place over a weekend in late April so appointments aren’t disrupted.
A statement published on the surgery’s website said:
We believe this move will give us the space to increase the range of services we can offer you and make staying with Wye Valley Surgery worthwhile for all our patients.
We very much hope you will wish to stay registered with us, however, if you do choose to leave you can find the practices that are taking patients in your area by visiting www.nhs.uk.
More information on the move can be found on the Wye Valley Surgery website.
