Shore Medical Partnership

Shore Medical

Heatherview Medical Centre (and Fernside Surgery), Lilliput Surgery, Parkstone Tower Practice, Poole Road Medical Centre & Wessex Road Surgery have formed a new Partnership under the group name “Shore Medical”

As a registered patient of Parkstone Tower Practice this statement is to inform you of the merger of the above GP Partnerships forming Shore MedicalThis merger took place on 1st April 2019.

Please rest assured, the individual Practices will continue to operate as before from each site.

Patients will, however, in the future, benefit from access to a greater range of appointments and clinical services as we take advantage of the Government’s new investments in Primary Care.  We are already happy to be offering better access to blood tests at the individual surgeries, we are working together to ensure housebound patients have a team approach to their care, and we are offering access to GP appointments outside normal hours.  We are shortly planning to start a new travel clinic and have future plans to offer better support for patients in need of community support, access to expert medicines advice and improvements in physiotherapy services.  All these changes depend upon us working together as a larger group.

All registered patients will have the chance to keep up to date with the latest news and will have the opportunity to raise questions and share views with members of the Practice teams.  We will use your feedback to consider how Shore Medical will be shaped in the future.  We believe it is important that everybody’s views are considered, so please take the time to let us know your thoughts.

We plan to hold a Patient Engagement Evening in the near future which will be publicised in the Surgeries and on websites.  This will allow you the opportunity to speak to staff members of all the Shore Medical Practices, and to raise any ideas or concerns you may have.
