Rothschild House Group and Berkhamsted Group Practice have reached an agreement to work together from October 2019. On this date, the partnership running both surgeries will merge, but patients will continue to receive care at their current surgery.
The two partnerships have agreed to this merger because of the opportunities for a large, locally-run surgery to enhance patient care and attract additional services. We will be looking after 40,000 patients and will be able to share expertise from the current group of clinicians, as well as attracting new GPs and other clinicians to join. We will be making some operational changes over time,which include recruitment of additional clinicians for the Berkhamsted sites and Berkhamsted Group Practice starting to work to the Rothschild House Group model of care.
Our patients are at the heart of our service and both partnerships are very much looking forward to working together to strengthen our commitment to excellent patient care.
We will keep our Patient Groups up to date with our progress and publish regular updates for patients on our websites and in our waiting rooms.
