Back in September 2019 an exciting new pilot project GP practice opened in Ordsall in response to the hugely expanding population in that region of Salford. The purpose of the pilot project was to discover and develop innovative new ways for a GP surgery to work and meet the rapidly changing and complex needs of the local population.
The decision was made by the Salford CCG to end the pilot scheme this year and from 1st April 2021 the running of services at this site were awarded to Salford Medical Centre. We have been one of the longest running practices in Salford and we are excited to merge with the Quays Practice running across two sites at Langworthy Road and 1st FLoor of Ordsall Health Centre.
The Quays Practice will become our sister site and will continue to deliver services from the 1st Floor of Ordsall Health Centre premises from 1st April 2021.
What does this mean for you?
If you are an existing patient of Salford Medical Centre
There will be no change to your services. We will continue to run services as normal from our existing Langworthy Road premises beyond 1st April 2021. We will not be moving from here.
If you are a new patient wishing to register with the Quays Practice now (before April 2021)
You can register directly using our New Patient Registration form through Salford Medical Centre and we will provide your care but not at the 1st Floor Ordsall Health Centre site until the 1st April 2021 when we will move in there also.
If you are already a patient of the Quays Practice
Not to worry your service will continue as normal until 1st April 2021. From this date your current service provider (Langworthy Medical Practice who ran the pilot scheme) will continue providing your GP service if you wish but NOT at the current site (1st Floor Ordsall Health Centre). Your options are:
- If you want to stay with Langworthy Medical Practice- you don’t need to do anything. If you need to be seen you will need to go to their surgery based on Langworthy Road*.
- If you would prefer to stay at the Quays and be seen there you will need re-register with the Quays on or after 1st April 2021. We will be happy to continue to provide your care at the Quays. If you wish to re-register with the Quays before 1st April 2021 you may do so but please note you will not be able to be seen there face to face until this date (with remote consultation by Salford Medical Centre and face to face taking place at our Langworthy Road site until 1st April 2021).
* Langworthy Medical Practice and Salford Medical Centre are both based on Langworthy Road in Salford but we are two separate practices.
