New GP health services announced

Details about new health services for Nottinghamshire have been announced.

Up to 12,000 patients are set to benefit from new GP practices in Nottingham city centre and Bilborough.

A GP-led health centre in Nottingham will open to offer services to everyone including people who travel into the city for work or leisure.

Derby Road Health centre will run the surgery in Bilborough, and NEMS Healthcare Ltd will run the GP practice and health centre in Nottingham.

We will be making sure that the new services are top quality and have a real impact on the health of local people
Andrew Kenworthy, chief executive Nottingham City PCT

Nottingham City Primary Care Trust has also announced plans to introduce a new GP surgery in the Bestwood area for about 6,000 patients.

About 15m will be spent over the next five years on the new services.

The services are being introduced in response to government minister Lord Darzi's report on the NHS which called for improved access to GPs.

Nottingham City PCT chief executive Andrew Kenworthy said: "This additional investment is a fantastic opportunity for us and we will be making sure that the new services are top quality, and have a real impact on the health of local people."

A public consultation was held by Nottingham City PCT asking local people where they wanted the new facilities and what kind of services they thought should be provided from them.
