We are very pleased to announce that Sothall Medical Centre has joined the PCS|Practices group.
Primary Care Sheffield was asked to step in when the GP partners at Sothall were unable to find other GPs to take on the partnership as they planned for the retirement. The change means that the practice can remain open and serving its patients and ensures control of the practice remains in the hands of Sheffield GP practices. Read more about Primary Care Sheffield.
Whilst there will be changes behind the scenes, patients will notice little difference. The current practice team will remain in place including the GP partners, who will continue actively in their roles until each of their planned retirement dates.
Primary Care Sheffield already run seven practices in the city. These practices have continued to improve the quality of their services despite being in some of the most deprived areas of Sheffield. The hard work of the practice teams alongside the PCS infrastructure have led to them improving from being rated as ‘requires improvement’ by the independent Care Quality Commission to being awarded ‘outstanding’ and ‘good’ ratings in their most recent inspections. This is part of the reason that Primary Care Sheffield was named as Primary and Community Provider of the Year 2022 at the national Health Service Journal Awards.
