Rothwell Today | 29 July 2008

The private firm which is to run New Cross Surgery in Rothwell has been named.

Grange Medicare Limited has been selected to provide NHS care at New Cross as well as two other GPs in Leeds.

The others are Swillington Health Centre & Middleton Park Surgery in Middleton.

Leeds Primary Care Trust (PCT) chose the firm because its staff are already providing healthcare elsewhere in West Yorkshire and several of company’s GP partners work at New Cross Surgery.

Grange Medicare was chosen after local people were asked their views during a three-month consultation which ended in March.

They said they wanted quick access to GP appointments, a local family doctor service, convenient opening hours and specialist services in their surgery.

Dr Damian Riley, director of primary care at Leeds PCT, said: “Grange Medicare Limited demonstrated that they are an excellent and experienced provider of GP services offering the highest level of care and representing the best value for money.”

Dr Lufte Kamal, executive chairman of Grange Medicare Limited said: “We are committed to giving patient friendly medical care from all three practices and we are looking forward to working together with the existing staff.”

The firm will take over in early autumn.
