Practice Merger

A decision has been proposed for the benefit of all patients of Dr Maria Coutinho of Trinity Medical Centre PMS, to merge with Plumstead Health Centre.

This proposed merger will mean that patients at all practices will receive continuity of care and improved access to both core, additional and enhanced services.

The proposed merger would also give long term sustainability and resilience to both practices and also provides succession and continuity of service to the patients of Trinity Medical Centre PMS.

Patient Participation Group Consultation has taken place across both practices, to provide patients with the necessary information on the proposals and an opportunity to raise any concerns and questions.

The merger will provide the required staffing levels, provide adequate premises and help support sustainability, viability and stability for all patients.

We would like to hear your views about the merger and would ask patients to complete a short survey:

We will also be sending patients a link to the survey via an SMS text message.

Finally we have compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions (PDF) which we hope will address any issues that you may have and these are displayed on notice boards at all receptions as well as on the websites of the practices.

Thank You – Dr Maria Coutinho
