Dr K K Chan & partners and 7Brooks Medical Practice - engagement work

What happened?

Between 7th May 2019 and 18th June 2019 we supported Dr KK Chan & partners and 7Brooks Medical Practice to engage with their patients about a proposal to merge the practices.

Dr K K Chan & Partners and 7Brooks Medical practice in Atherton currently share the same building on Church Street but run as two separate practices. Due to several key members of staff leaving 7Brooks Medical practice, Dr K K Chan & partners took over back office functions to help out. Since this has been working well they are looking to merge the practices into one larger practice.

We got people involved by:

  • Producing an information leaflet and survey that was given out to patients
  • Doing some face-to-face engagement work in the waiting rooms
  • Holding a Patient Participation Group (PPG) meeting
  • Sending the information to key patient groups in the local area
  • Posting about it online and making the information available on the website

What difference did people make?

You can download a copy of the engagement report below:

Most patients could see benefits to the proposed merger. There is a “You Said, We Listened” summary within the report where the practice has responded to any of the concerns or issues raised.

The practice will be going ahead with an application to merge the practices and this will be considered by the CCGs Primary Care Commissioning Committee which is a meeting held in public. Click here for more information on the committee.

What’s next?

The practice will be arranging another Patient Participation Group (PPG) meeting as soon as a decision is made on the merger. If you are a patient and would like to join this group please ask at reception!

We will also post an update on this page.
