Welcome To Chapel Street Medical Centre



Patient information

You may remember last August that we asked you about Bedford House, Chapel Street and Tame Valley Medical Centres joining forces to form a bigger and better combined health centre.

That consultation process ended with an overwhelming majority in support of us joining together. We also have the support of the CCG and NHS England following that process. 

The planned date when all of this was going to happen was the 1st April 2018. As these things go, they are always a lot more complicated that you could ever imagine and the process of us joining together has been no different.

The aim and intention is still the same. We will be joining together to form a more sustainable and better health centre called Ashton Medical Group. The only thing that has changes is the date when this will occur.

Until all of our computer systems are merged by the end of May, we will continue to operate as before. Therefore the way you interact with the practice will be ALMOST EXACTLY the same for the TIME BEING.

·         The way you access appointments for your current surgery will be the same

·         The way you order and collect prescriptions will be the same

·         The telephone numbers will remain the same

·         The doctors you currently have access to or currently see will be the same

The only thing that is changing is that from 1st April Tame Valley will align their opening hours with the two other practices. So all three practices will open 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday excluding bank holidays. This means Tame Valley will no longer offer the early morning surgery on a Thursday but will open an hour later at night, than currently.

As we begin to align systems and have new telephone systems installed etc. we will notify you in plenty of time of any changes that are about to happen and ensure that you are still able to access each medical centre.
