GPs from 9 different practice sites are interested in moving into one of four new buildings. If plans go ahead, it will mean the practice moving from its current site and into a new building shared with other GP practices, and the current GP practice site would close.
These are the GP practice sites that are interested in moving to new premises:
Foundry Health Centre 1
- Burngreave Surgery (including Cornerstone Surgery and Herries Rd Surgery branch)
- Sheffield Medical Centre
Potential location of health centre – Spital Street S3 (next to Sheffield Medical Centre)
Foundry Health Centre 2
- Page Hall Medical Centre
- Upwell Street Surgery
Potential location of health centre – Rushby Street S4
SAPA 5 Health Centre 1
- Firth Park Surgery
- Shiregreen Medical Centre
Potential location of health centre – Concord Sports Centre
SAPA 5 Health Centre 2
- The Health Care Surgery (part of Green Cross Group Practice)
- Buchanan Road Surgery
- Margetson Surgery (part of Ecclesfield Group Practice)
Potential location of health centre – Buchanan Rd/Wordsworth Avenue S5
Practices are considering whether to become part of a new health centre or if they should stay in their current location. If the GP practices involved in the consultation decide to go ahead and move into the new health centres it would mean moving from their existing practices premises to the new health centres.
Patient feedback is vital to practices in their decision of whether the proposals are right for most of their patients and their practice, taking all factors in to account, or if they should stay in their current location.
