Important information for ladies aged 68-71 not receiving invitations for breast cancer screening (as seen on the news)
All women affected will now be contacted by letter by the end of May and those under 72 will receive an appointment for a catch-up mammogram.
Women aged over 72 can contact a helpline to talk through the pros and cons of having breast screening – scans in older women sometimes pick up cancers which do not require treatment.
What to do if you’re affected?
- Call the breast screening helpline number 0800 169 2692
- Go the NHS Choices website for more information
- You should receive a letter by the end of May
IMPORTANT PATIENT NOTICE
Proposed merger of Hove Park Villas with Trinity Medical Centre
You may or may not beware that over the last 15 months, our neighbours at Hove Park Villas surgery have been trying without success to recruit a partner to replace Dr Alex Mancey Barratt who is retiring; their current premises will no longer be available to the NHS once Dr Mancey Barratt retires and the practice will have to close.
The Trinity Medical Centre and Hove Park Villas teams have been working hard to find the best outcome for the patients, staff, GPs and the local community.
We believe that this can be achieved by merging Hove Park Villas with Trinity Medical Centre to create a larger, single practice – an approach that is supported wholeheartedly by the Clinical Commissioning Group (who commissions our services). This way, we can continue to provide first rate, sustainable GP services to the local community.
We appreciate there may be apprehension about this increase in patients but we have already started the planning process, giving consideration to where we need to make practical changes so we can incorporate the additional staff and patients in an effective way, with as little disruption to you as possible. Please be reassured that we are revising how our appointment booking system works plus improving telephone access and increasing the number of appointments.
We intend to complete the merger by the start of October this year. At the time of the merger, the Hove Park Villas site will close and staff and patients will transfer to Trinity Medical Centre.
