Important Message for all Verney Close Surgery Patients & Carers
We are pleased to announce that from 1st July 2016, Verney Close Surgery and The Swan Practice will become one GP practice under one contract, continuing to operate from the current sites in Buckingham. We apologise for the short notice and understand the importance of keeping you informed but this was unavoidable. We are very excited about the future, and firmly believe that working together can only provide a more resilient service with greater choice for patients.
You should have received a letter from Aylesbury Vale Clinical Commissioning Group explaining the background to this but if not a copy can be accessed below. Services will continue as normal throughout the transition phase, meaning that you will use the same telephone number and continue to access services here at Verney Close Surgery.
Over the coming months there will be some changes, the main one being that as from 1st July your registration will be held by The Swan Practice, but you will continue to be seen at Verney Close Surgery. When the technical side of merging information is complete there will be more options for patients.
Unfortunately Verney Close Surgery will not be accepting new registrations from 1st July until the database merge is complete in October 2016. For more information and to register please visit : http://www.theswanpractice.co.uk/
You can still access other online services to make appointments and order repeat prescriptions through the Verney Close Surgery website until changes are announced.
The Partners of The Swan and Verney Close Surgery are committed to improving and expanding healthcare services for all of our patients. There will be new GP's starting in the summer who will work across all sites and this will be beneficial to us all. In time we envisage a greater choice for patients, ability to receive care across all sites and more choice and access to your health care providers.
