Discussions advance on Bicester's new health hub
Planning for Bicester's new 'Super Surgery' is continuing with a further meeting held this week between some of those with a key interest in the project. Bicester GPs and Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group invited local patients' groups and community representatives to discuss the criteria that may be used in coming to a decision on which site is chosen.
The new, purpose-built, £15m health hub is expected to be at either Kingsmere or Graven Hill. Both Alchester and Montgomery-House practices will move into the new building and will continue to operate as seperate practices. The only other local medical practice, Bicester Health Centre, will stay and expand on its present site in Coker Close.
The new facility should mean extra health services will be based in Bicester and there will be much needed additional capacity to take on more patients as the town's population booms. It's hoped that agreements can be reached to enable the new surgery to open to patients in 2022.
Public Meeting - May 14th 2019
On Tuesday 14th May 2019 we held a public meeting.
We’d like to thank everyone who came along to the public meeting on the changes and expansions planned for Bicester surgeries. We hope you found it informative and helpful in making your views known.
The large hall at the John Paul II Centre quickly became full as so many people chose to attend - we’re very sorry that a few people needed to stand as seating ran out.
We’ll let you know when more events are planned as further progress is made on the new super surgery.
