Wokingham Medical Centre teams up with Modality Partnership

Wokingham Medical Centre have joined the GP super-partnership called Modality Partnership. Modality Partnership are the first national GP partnership serving the NHS, responsible for 190,000 patients across their five locations in England.

Wokingham Medical Centre remains committed to NHS values and providing excellent care to our registered patients. This formal change was effective from 1 June 2017. Patients should not experience any direct change to the service they get from their doctor’s surgery. And all staff will be consulted about their jobs, contracts and working patterns.

Dr Vipan Bhardwaj, GP and lead for the new division of Modality Partnership said

“We want to make a real difference to primary care in Wokingham, and by joining with Modality Partnership we have an opportunity to transform care for our patients and be an employer of choice in the local area.

The benefits in the medium to long term will include improved access and care for all of our patients and ultimately this move will create sustainable local GP services that are fit for the future.

We have chosen to work with Modality Partnership as they share our philosophy and ambition for the future of primary care and GP led services for all patients.

We are working with our staff to determine future changes and we are keen to hear from our patients and stakeholders. We will be inviting them to meet with us to discuss our plans in the coming weeks. We are hugely excited to have joined Modality Partnership and look forward to having a pivotal role in shaping the future of healthcare in this locality.”
