Proposed Merger with Yeadon Tarn Medical Practice
Our two practices have been working closely together successfully for a number of years and the GP Partners are hoping to build on this success by becoming one Practice next year. They will maintain their current buildings and patients will retain the same named GP, whilst having the flexibility to access additional services at either of the two sites.

Why the GP Partners are looking at merger
The decision to look at this has been taken after careful consideration to help ensure consistent high quality care, in order to improve and future-proof safe, effective and sustainable primary care for the local population.
“We care about the services that we offer to patients and believe that by bringing the two practices together we will demonstrate our values and behaviours of caring, respectfulness and efficiency in the delivery of service improvement for all our patients. We know from experience that both the practices involved have like-minded values and share the same ethos and vision for patient services.”Dr Laura Clegg
The national direction of primary care is changing. There are ambitious plans in the NHS to have a wider range of services than is currently the case, delivered at scale in primary care settings. This merger will enable the practices to develop a more sustainable future both clinically and financially, investing in new staff, facilities and equipment for our patients.”Dr Chris Mills
