Proposed Changes to the Services Provided at the Health Living Centre
Information regarding the proposed changes to services provided at the Healthy Living Centre (HLC).
The HLC is under a new provider GHAC. GHAC are an established NHS provider across Gloucester and Cheltenham. They presently provide the Choice + service, which provide additional GP services to practices and thus improves access for patients.
St Catherine’s Surgery remains committed to providing a Branch Surgery from the HLC. We have been successful in securing a lease for 2 rooms (GP and Nurse) from the NHS.
At the HLC we provide;
- Access to an experienced established Nursing Team
- A Nursing Team that consists of Nurse Practitioners, Assistant Practitioners and Healthcare Assistants
- The provision of Advanced Nurse Practitioner Appointments
The present reception team will only be able to provide a ‘Meet and Greet’ reception function for our patients. The provision of registration, repeat prescriptions, appointment making and advice and information will be provided by the main reception team at St Catherine’s. The HLC telephone number for St Catherine’s patients will cease to operate and we therefore ask that patients phone 01242 215005.
