We have been working closely with Mayfield Medical Centre just down the road for over a year now, in order to ensure the long-term sustainability of General Practice in this area. We share a Paramedic who helps with visits, a Pharmacist, a Practice Manager as well as some GP, Nurse and administrative resources. Hurrah! We are now proposing a formal merger.
