Granton Medical Centre, and Griffins Brook Medical Centre and Bunbury Road Surgery (BG Health), in considering their options to move from three separate surgeries into one single building on the Bournville Village Trust estate by 2020, held a period of engagement with patients and stakeholders which was supported by the CCG from mid-August to 28 September 2018.
The current sites are either not fit for purpose or do not meet the current standards expected for a GP surgery. Moving to a larger site, would allow the practices to offer patients the best possible healthcare, with additional space available for current and future services, in a purpose-built health and wellbeing centre.
The approximate walking distances from the existing surgeries to the new site just off the Bristol Road are:
- Granton Medical Centre – 1.4 miles
- Griffins Brook Medical Centre – 0.3 miles
- Bunbury Road Surgery – 0.9 miles.
Patients and stakeholders were given the opportunity to have their say and ask questions at six drop-in sessions held during September 2018 (two at each practice), as well as through an online survey; which was also available from practice receptions as a paper version.
