Please be advised that the Lewisham CCG Primary Care Commissioning Committee (PCCC) held on the 17th December 2019 approved the merger between the Brockley Road Medical Centre and Hilly Fields Medical Centre

As part of this merger, the Brockley Road Medical Centre site will close on Friday 13th March 2020 at 18.30pm and all staff and services will be transferred to Hilly Fields Medical Centre, 172 Adelaide Avenue, SE4 1JN.

What this will mean for patients
By joining together and operating from Hilly Fields Medical Centre, patients will experience an enhanced and improved selection of services and increased access (including on Saturdays), delivered from fully DDA compliant premises. It is also an opportunity to consolidate and develop high quality services for patients and ensure the resilience and sustainability of the practice in the longer term.

Patient engagement
Letters have been sent to all patients of both practices informing them about the merger. The letters include information on how to re-register with a new practice, should a patient wish to do so.

Patient engagement sessions were also arranged to support patients and discuss what improvements they would like to see as part of the merger.

These took place at the Brockley Road Medical Centre, 465 – 467 Brockley Road, SE4 2PJ on the following dates:
 Saturday 11th January, 9.30am – 11.30am
 Wednesday 15th January, 12pm – 2pm, and
 Thursday 16th January 5pm – 7pm.

Chair: Dr Faruk Majid Accountable Officer: Andrew Bland Managing Director: Martin Wilkinson
