Regent Medical Centre and Broadway Medical Centre merged into one contract on the 1st April 2022.

What does this mean?

As of the 1st April 2022 the GP contract will merge however there will be a transitional period over the next 5 months in terms of update to systems and processes. 

April – July

The practices will continue to provide services separately with no change to surgery telephone numbers or the way that services are provided. 

During this period patients will only be able to access the surgery they are registered with.


We are awaiting a final date for the update to our clinical system.  The update will enable process changes e.g. booking an appointment at either site.  When details and a date of any changes have been established we will communicate out to patients with the information and what it will mean.
