Important Notice regarding the merger of Park Surgery and York Place
Park Surgery and York Place will merge on 1 st of May and become Woodhead Medical Practice.
There will be some disruption to service over this time as our computer systems are combined and updated. We are working hard with the Health Boards to reduce the impact this has as much as possible. Please see the time line below which outlines the changes which will happen to support the merger and the impact this will have upon the service we provide.
Friday 27th April 2018.
Our computer systems will not be available over this time to allow data to be transferred onto the new server. This means that the doctor will not have access to your health record and will not be able to see what medicines you are taking or check your blood results. Repeat and one-off prescriptions will not be available at this time. There will be no pre-bookable appointments with doctors or nurses (including bloods) on this day. For emergency appointments please contact your current practice (i.e. York Place or Park Surgery). Drs Davda and McGroarty and staff will move from York Place to the new Woodhead Medical Practice at Saramago Street at close of business.
Monday 30th April
Computer systems will continue to be unavailable and doctors will not have access to your medical records and will be unable to issue repeat or one-off prescriptions. All patients previously registered with York Place and Park Surgery will now be seen at Woodhead Medical Practice located at Saramago Street (current Park Surgery address). Emergency appointments will be available over this time.
Tuesday 1st May
Computer systems will likely be unavailable and doctors may not have access to your medical records and may be unable to issue repeat or one-off prescriptions.
All patients will now be seen at Woodhead Medical Practice.
Wednesday 2nd of May
All computer services should be available, and while we expect to be able to start providing prescriptions, there will likely be a backlog and one-off prescriptions may take longer than the usual 48 hours to issue. We will update notice both in the practice and our website www.woodheadmedicalpractice.co.uk to keep you informed of events.
Woodhead Medical Practice telephone lines will be closed for routine enquiries between 1pm and 2pm every day to allow time for staff training and service development. You can still phone the surgery during that time for an emergency.
Drs Davda, Fraser, McGroarty and Ness
