Published: 28 March 2019 | Categories: Community
Nottingham North and East Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has secured the future provision of primary care services at Whyburn Medical Practice in Hucknall.
Primary Integrated Community Services (PICS) Ltd has been awarded a contract to run the practice from 1 June 2019. The practice’s registered patients do not need to take any action, and will be able to continue accessing services and appointments as normal.
In December, the GP partners at Whyburn Medical Practice in Hucknall gave Nottingham North and East Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) six months’ notice that they intended to hand back the contract they hold for providing GP services to around 12,000 patients in the town.
Following a rigorous procurement process to find a new provider, the CCG evaluated the bids received and selected PICS as best placed to deliver the contract.
Primary Integrated Community Services was established in 2013 as a provider of local health services, owned and delivered by local clinicians. You can read more about PICS here.
Dr James Hopkinson, Clinical Lead at Nottingham North and East CCG said: “PICS have an excellent reputation for delivering high quality primary care services in Greater Nottingham. We’re confident that they will sustain safe, high quality care services at Whyburn.
“The new contract will offer patients a continuity of service and I’d like to reassure them that they do not need to do anything, the service will continue from Whyburn as normal.
Dr Adam Connor from PICS says: We’re delighted to have been awarded this contract and look forward to providing high quality care, safeguarding services and supporting people in Hucknall”.
