Proposal to merge Fountain Medical Centre and Dr N Saddiq’s Surgery.

What is this survey about?

Fountain Medical Centre and Dr Saddiq’s Surgery have submitted an application to NHS West Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (ICB) to merge both practices onto one site at Fountain Medical Centre.  This will ensure the future ability to deliver high quality primary care to our patients.

NHS West Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (ICB) are responsible for planning and funding most of your local healthcare services and have agreed for this involvement to take place.

The merger will offer improved access and choice for patients.  Working together from Fountain Medical Centre will mean that both practices are better placed to deliver high quality primary care services in the future.

This survey gives you the opportunity to get involved in this change.  Your responses will help us to understand what is most important to you about the GP practice service you receive and your views and thoughts on this merger.
