Practice Merger Update
We are now coming into the final stages of our merger between The Quarter Jack Surgery and The Old Dispensary.
Whilst there have been many changes since we first announced the merger back in June 2023, the partners wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your understanding and support during this time. We have been effectively operating as one surgery since June, but there is one last stage to fully complete the process.
On Monday 18th March 2024, the final part of the merger will be carried out to join our two practices, which entails the merging of the surgery computer systems. This will entail some disruption to normal services and the closure of both surgeries for some of the afternoon whilst this takes place.
There will be further details issued closer to the date on what the completion of the merger will mean for you, the patients.
GP Patient Survey 2024
The annual GP patient survey has been launched again. This is a national survey commissioned by NHS England and managed by the research company Ipsos. A completely random selection of patients from every GP practice will be contacted by Ipsos with an invitation to complete a survey about their GP practice, either online or by post.
The GP practice has no influence over who gets to take part in the survey and they will not know who has been invited to take part. Results of the anonymous survey are published in July.
It’s so important that patients know about the survey and don’t ignore it if they’re contacted – it only takes a couple negative responses to skew the overall results for the practice, so the more people that complete the survey the more accurate the published results will be.

Our salaried GP, Dr Anna Kendrick will be taking over patients from Dr Louise Logan following her last day with us on Friday. Anna has been with us for a number of years and is looking forward to having her own patient list.
