Chiltern House Medical Centre to hold information sessions for Holmer Green patients

Residents of Holmer Green who use Chiltern House Medical Centre are being invited to attend two drop-in sessions in the village to find out more about how their primary care health will be delivered in the future.

Primary Care Management Solutions (PCMS), which will be providing GP services at Chiltern House Medical Centre in High Wycombe from 1 September, will hold the events later this month.

Dragon Cottage Surgery in Holmer Green – which was part of Chiltern House Medical Practice – closed last year after its lease expired. PCMS has been working with the Patient Participation Group at Chiltern House and NHS Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group to ensure the primary care needs of Holmer Green residents will continue to be met. This will be through a range of options that will put the area at the forefront of finding new, innovative ways to serve patients in villages.

Phil Coates, MD of PCMS, said: “We are committed to continuing to serve the primary healthcare needs of our patients who live in Holmer Green and we are excited to be bringing innovative new plans to the village. We look forward to sharing our ideas and we hope as many people as possible can join us at these events.”

Allied healthcare professionals (AHPs) – including an advanced nurse practitioner (ANP), paramedic and pharmacist will be on hand to explain the new approaches to delivering services in Holmer Green and how these plans will benefit residents.

There will be information on Q Doctor – an online doctor service providing secure, easy to use video GP consultations from a PC or smartphone – and how people less familiar with technology will be able to benefit.

Representatives from the Hazlemere, Widmer End & Holmer Green Good Neighbours Transport Scheme will be there, to promote their services. Other information on plans for local services will also be available at the drop-in sessions.

Both events will be held at the Sports Centre, 87 Watchet Lane, Holmer Green, HP15 6UF at the following times:

Wednesday, 28 August – 11am to 2pm

Friday, 30 August – 1.30 to 4.30pm

Everyone is welcome to attend. Refreshments will be available.
