Did you know there is a merger planned for three local GP surgeries?
The practices affected are Rutland House, Queens Avenue and Muswell Hill (formally known as Dukes Avenue). The precise details are, as yet, unclear as things keep changing but apparently the leases of two of the practices are up for renewal and Haringey Council is having discussions about relocating the three practices to 54 Muswell Hill. This is just off the the Muswell Hill roundabout, opposite the Mossy Well Pub. This proposal is in line with government policy to urge GP practices to merge and create larger 'hubs'.
As patients of one of the practices that would be affected we feel that our practice already gives a very good level of service even with the current cuts in their budget. We want to make sure that this level of service is maintained, accessibility guaranteed and that current staff are protected.
To find out more you could contact your local practice, your local Councillor or MP. Please let us know what you are able to find out and, more importantly, what you think about the proposed merger
