Carfax Health Enterprise CIC (CHE) is a not-for-profit organisation that took over Great Western Surgery in January 2017 with a time limited contract.
To ensure the continuation of current services we have agreed with BSW CCG, the commissioners, to merge the practice contract with the contract of Sparcells Surgery, also run by CHE and not time limited. This will take place on 1 July 2021 and secure the future of the Great Western Surgery for both patients and staff.
This will not affect the services provided at Great Western Surgery. The location in Farriers Close and telephone number will not change and we will continue to provide clinical services from the premises.
A positive outcome of the merger will be that the clinical teams at both practices will work closely together, sharing expertise and creating additional capacity. There will also be more access at both sites to specialist staff such as our Mental Health Nurse and Clinical Pharmacist.
The only change that patients may see is that any electronically generated messages may say that they come from Sparcells Surgery.
