Proposed Merger between South Grange Medical Centre & Albert House Clinic
We would like to let you know as a patient of South Grange Medical Centre, that after repeated discussions with Albert House Clinic and the Health Authority, we are currently looking into a merger. Under this proposal both surgeries will operate from South Grange Medical Centre.
The reason for this proposed merge is to improve the quality and range of services provided for both surgeries, including access to appointments. Through merging both practices together we will achieve better use of space within our practice and also share expertise more effectively.
Patients attending the surgery will benefit from a wider access of appointment times during 8am-6pm and we will continue to offer extended hours on a Saturday for pre-booked appointments.
We are currently awaiting approval from NHS England for this proposed merge and will keep patients informed throughout this process.

Our Surgery is working with NHS Tees and other local Practices to ensure patients access the right treatment by going to the right place first time. This campaign includes posters, leaflets and information about where to go within the NHS to get the right treatment
By going to the right place first time you can get the right treatment from your NHS.
It is estimated that almost half of all A+E attendances could have been treated by their GP, a local pharmacist or treated themselves with basic self-care, first aid and advice.
Many people automatically go to A+E as soon as they feel ill or have an accident. Please click on the below leaflet link for details on the range of options available.
TEXT MESSAGES FROM THE SURGERY
We are now able to send text messages to patients. No confidential information will ever be sent, only appointment reminders and updates. All patients with a mobile number recorded on file will be included in this new service, unless you inform reception that you wish to opt out and this will be recorded on your notes. Patients can update their preference at any time. Please ensure your mobile number on our records is correct.
