Spirit Healthcare is working with Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust and Bushloe Surgery to ensure a smooth handover of services for patients and staff
Spirit Healthcare is pleased to announce it has been awarded a five-year contract by NHS Leicester City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to provide primary care services at three Leicester GP practices, as part of the CCG’s wider re-procurement process.
Tim Loveridge, Spirit’s Managing Director Clinical Services said “We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded the contracts to provide these GP services from 1 October 2017. We will be working with our NHS partners, Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust and local GP practice Bushloe Surgery, to make sure the patients at Asquith Surgery, Beaumont Leys Health Centre and the two practices at Rushey Mead Health Centre, which will come together as one, get the very best care.”
He added “We will be meeting with local patients and surgery staff as soon as we can – and look forward to talking to as many people as possible. We will also be writing out to patients in due course, to introduce ourselves and share our ambitions. Patients will continue to be able to access the practices in the way they do now on 1 October.”
