New provider to be sought for Hightown Village Surgery

Monday, June 19, 2017

NHS commissioners are to seek a new provider for Hightown Village Surgery.

The decision to go out to market to find a new provider has been made following the recent six week listening exercise, which sought the views of registered patients about the future delivery of primary care services in Hightown.

NHS England and NHS South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group carefully considered all the patient feedback, along with other key information including an independent transport survey and independent premises audit.

The procurement process is likely to start later in the summer. More information will be made available in the practice when detailed timescales are known.

In the meantime, the contract with the current providers at Hightown Surgery runs until 31 December, 2017, and patients can continue receiving services as normal while the longer term arrangements are put in place.
