The Practice plc, through its associated company The Practice Surgeries Ltd, has further expanded its growing network of GP practices with a new surgery in West London. Yeading Lane Medical Centre in Hillingdon adds to the company’s existing local presence and comes on board as at a stage in its development where partnering with The Practice will bring significant opportunity for growth and business improvement. The Practice takes over the management from Chilvers McCrea Healthcare.

Karl Savage, Head of Surgeries at The Practice commented ‘we are very excited with this news as Yeading Lane Medical Centre will be an important addition to our growing network of surgeries. Expansion in the Hillingdon area gives the opportunity for joint working and sharing of best practice particularly with our other local GP surgery in Shakespeare Avenue. In addition it allows us to build on the clinical services we also provide into the local community.’

Over the next few weeks, The Practice will be working on an integration plan to ensure a smooth and seamless transition for patients and staff.
