Merger Information

Due to significant changes in funding provision that we were relying on to deliver the proposed single site, Moatfield Surgery will not be merging with Judges Close surgery. Sadly, without the significant premises development needed to deliver a site that is fit for purpose able to cater for a large, merged Practice, many of the benefits we have described in our business plans and public consultations would not be realised.

After very careful consideration, we are unable to justify the even greater challenges and pressures on our already limited and stretched resources that merging, without the any of the benefits of a single site, would demand.

Both practices will continue to work together to provide a high standard of care for patients and we remain committed to continue to look at new ways of providing  high quality and  flexible services.

We are immensely grateful for the support that our patients have given us towards this project and at both public meetings. We are looking forward to continuing to develop and enhance what we offer and to continue to work closely with our local Practices.



Judges Close Surgery will be closed on Wednesday 21st November 2018 from 12.30pm for a regional training event. In case of an emergency, please telephone 999 For medical advice, please telephone NHS111 by dialing 111

The surgery will re-open Thursday morning as usual.

However, we are aware that things can go wrong resulting in a patient feeling that they have a genuine cause for concern or complaint.
