Important Patient Announcement – Practice Merger (Updated 19th November 2021)

We are delighted to announce that the merger between Manchester Medical and Longsight Medical Practice will take place on 6th December 2021. Following discussion with GPs and staff at Manchester Medical about our strengths and weaknesses as individual organisations, and our vision for services in the future, we have decided that we share the same ambition, and a merger of the two organisations offers great benefits, providing a genuinely exciting opportunity in terms of increased resources, skills and experience.

The same doctors, healthcare professionals and staff will still be part of the new team. You will be able to consult with your chosen Doctor as usual. The same standards of quality and personal care will continue to be important in the new partnership, but our aim is to enhance services and flexibility whilst ensuring stability for our patients. An enlarged organisation also allows us to improve access to services.

The practices are very enthusiastic about a new partnership and we have been working closely to integrate systems and combine processes. However, our main priority is to ensure a seamless transition for our patients and minimise any disruption.

We see this as an opportunity for us to build a secure future for our two practices. For you, it will mean that we will be able to offer the best service for our patients with excellent resources.
