Highlands Health Centre - Beacon Medical Group ( posted on Mar 7, 2018 )

Highlands Health Centre  – Beacon Medical Group



The partners of Highlands Health Centre and Beacon Medical Group have had a series of positive, friendly and fruitful meetings to discuss how a closer working relationship might benefit the population of Ivybridge.


We have decided to look at how we may work together to bring our organisations together to work much more closely.  This is still in the early stages as we are meeting to look at the feasibility.


We feel this is a fantastic opportunity to improve services offered to our community. We intend to achieve this by pooling our expertise and developing our relationships with our community and our community services.


The NHS, and General Practice in particular is facing unprecedented pressures, working together we feel we can create an adaptable, thriving and sustainable practice.


Developing a larger, robust and resilient practice will enable us to continue to deliver personal healthcare which our patients have come to value and which meets their needs and preferences.


Our aim is to enable our patients, whenever possible, to consult with their preferred, most trusted doctor or nurse, in both face to face and telephone consultations but we are conscious that we must respond to great increases in demand and the requirement to provide longer hours of access.


We will also take this opportunity to look at the way we work and how we can make it better for our patients, focusing initially on patient access, appointments and prescriptions. Working together will give us a strong foundation on which to maintain our current level of service, develop new ways of caring for our patients and expand the services we can offer.


The incorporation of Highlands Health Centre into Beacon Medical Group would potentially take place in the Autumn of 2018, however both practices will remain open providing GP appointments from both sites.


Individually we are both successful practices with similar, patient centred approaches to care, and a shared belief in making a continued positive difference to our patients. We feel it is the right moment to seize the opportunity to build and expand on our successes by combining our efforts.​
