GP Practices in Workington – Merger
The five practices in Workington have been given approval to start the merger process.
This will mean all our practices will be working together. We do this already around the Workington Primary Care Centre, home visiting service and the covid vaccine roll-out.
We can now start to put some of the building blocks for a more secure future in place and to do the work behind the scenes to bring the practices together formally. The formal merger will take place on the 1 February. Our computer systems will merge practice by practice over the coming weeks.
Patients will still use the same numbers to contact their practice and usually see the same health care professionals.
The feedback we received before Christmas will help shape our next steps and we will keep our patients informed and involved.
We will update you when we have progress to share.
