Merger of Blessing Medical Centre with Park House and Lonsdale Medical Centres
* Updated 31/10/19
We are informing patients of Blessing Medical Centre (BMC) that services will be merging with Park House and Lonsdale Medical Centres on the 1 December 2019.
The need to merge the practices is driven by increasing demands placed on local GP surgeries to provide high quality, innovative and specialist services to meet the diverse and complex needs of local residents.
The Blessing site will remain open, however services will be accessible to patient from both Lonsdale Medical Centre and Blessing.
More information will follow shortly.
