NHS Milton Keynes | News Release | 16 December 2009

NHS Milton Keynes is pleased to announce that the new GP-led health centre is now open.

Milton Keynes’ 28th GP practice is based in Broughton Gate. It is open from 8am until 8pm seven days a week, including weekends. The health centre offers all the services offered by a traditional GP practice. People who live anywhere within the Milton Keynes area are able to use the health centre’s services, whether or not they are registered with the practice.

Clive Brookes, Interim Director of Contracts at NHS Milton Keynes, said: “This is an exciting development for primary care in Milton Keynes. Not only will the health centre provide high-quality and safe care, it will improve local people’s access to basic primary care services by offering longer opening hours.”

The new health centre is run by The Practice, after going through a selection process to be identified as the provider. The Practice is one of the UK’s leading providers of primary care services, operating GP surgeries and new style GP-led health centres as well as providing community based specialist clinical services for the NHS.

Debbie Raven, Chief Operating Officer at The Practice, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the contract and look forward to working with the healthcare community in Milton Keynes – this will be key to the success of this project.

“Patients’ reaction to the flexibility and improved access at our other GP-led health centres has been overwhelmingly positive – I’m sure we will see a similar response here.”
