Tower Family Healthcare Update - 26th April 2018



We are absolutely delighted to announce that our plans to merge with each of the practices noted below to become ‘Tower Family Healthcare’ on 1st July 2018 have now been formally approved by Bury’s Clinical Commissioning Group and their Primary Care Commissioning Committee.


-       Greenmount Medical Centre

-       Minden Family Practices in Derby Way, Bury - Yacht, Waves and Anchor

-       Spring Lane Surgery, Radcliffe

-       Tottington Medical Practice


Our business case to merge was presented to the Primary Care Commissioning Committee yesterday (25th April) where we once again reiterated that each of our practices very much values the one to one relationships our patients have with our doctors and nurses and that coming together as Tower Family Healthcare will further increase our ability for these important relationships to continue. 


As we have previously said, we also expect to be able to reduce the need for locum doctors and provide you with a greater number of highly skilled local doctors and nurses in the event that your usual doctor or nurse is absent from work.  This is great news for all of our patients.


Becoming Tower Family Healthcare will also enable us to develop and provide our patients with greater access to a wider spectrum of specialist services like palliative care; diabetes; care of the elderly and urgent care access. 


As six practices coming together as one, we are extremely excited about what our future holds for all of our patients and we will continue to engage with you as we develop our plans in the run up to and beyond our merge date of 1st July 2018.


Please also note that any appointments you have booked will not be affected by this announcement.


Tower Family Healthcare Patient Engagement Roadshows!

Thank you to those that were able to meet with us during our recent patient engagement roadshows. We held afternoon and evening sessions, where we were able to meet and speak to many of our patients.

Understanding the views of our patients will enable Tower Family Healthcare to maintain and build upon the best of what we do now and will also help to make our services even better in the future. We would, therefore, be grateful if you could take a few minutes to complete our patient questionnaire using the following link TFH Patient Questionnaire and either return it to a member of our reception team or email directly to
