Abbey Meads Medical Centre

Penhill Surgery

New provider for GP practice

This practice will be joining a new provider within Brunel Health Group from 9 January 2022.

This follows three years of GP services being provided by Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

In this time, the Trust’s focus has been to improve the experience of patients and staff, achieving an improved rating with the Care Quality Commission.

The practice is now in a secure enough position to join an established local primary care network, which has the experience, knowledge and scale to support further improvements.

Brunel Health Group is made up of 14 independent GP surgeries providing care across the Swindon area.

Moredon Medical Centre, Abbey Meads Medical Practice, Penhill Surgery and Crossroads Surgery will each join a local provider within Brunel Health Group.

  • Moredon Medical Centre will join Westrop Medical Practice
  • Crossroads Surgery will join North Swindon Practice
  • Abbey Meads Medical Practice and Penhill Surgery will join Victoria Cross Surgery.

The Trust is working with Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon, and Wiltshire Integrated Care Board (who are responsible for planning local healthcare services) and practice staff, to ensure a smooth transfer and continuity of care for patients.

Patients should continue to use GP services as they would normally.

As a member of Swindon’s wider healthcare system, the Trust remains committed to improving the quality of the healthcare provided across the town and the experience of local people.
