Dickens Heath Medical Centre
Monkspath: Monkspath Surgery

The proposals outlined above are still at initial discussion stage and over the coming
months as we continue to work towards the possibility of this merger we will issue
further updates. Should you have any specific queries that you wish to raise in the
meantime then please do speak to us.
