Cannock’s Network Surgery given green light to continue

Cannock Practices’ Network Surgery project has now been officially informed by NHS England that it can continue and that it will be funded until at least March 2019.

The surgery was established following a successful £320,000 bid to the Prime Minister’s Challenge Fund last year and was designed to improve patient access to primary care by offering greater flexibility of appointments including evenings and weekends.

Help us to be fully inclusive

Our patients, residents, stakeholders and partners are invited to attend our Equality and Diversity Public Grading Event on Monday 18 April 2016, 10am-12.30pm at Merlin House in Tamworth.

It’s the time of year when colds and flu are doing the rounds in schools and nurseries across Cannock Chase.

Flu includes sudden fever, muscle aches, sweating, feeling exhausted and a dry or chesty cough. Although both illnesses share some of the same symptoms they are caused by different viruses.

Patients flocking to new Cannock GP surgery

A new GP surgery offering an extra 500 appointments a month has proven to be a real hit with patients in Cannock. Nearly all of the patients who have attended the Network Surgery since it opened its doors in September said they were either very satisfied or satisfied with the service they had received.
