We are writing with some important information about Earls Barton Medical Centre and Penvale Park Surgery.

Albany House Medical Centre has been acting as the caretaker practice and providing General Practice services to patients while we undertook a procurement exercise to appoint a more long-term provider.

We are delighted to be able to advise you that following this exercise a group of experienced GPs have come together to form a partnership to provide these services to the registered patients of Earls Barton Medical Centre and Penvale Park Surgery from 1 April 2024.

We would like to reassure you that you will still be able to access the full range of General Practice services you normally would, and services will continue to be delivered from the same locations.

Dr J Trivedi, Dr B Sidhu and Mr D Shah have experience of working both locally and in other areas of the country and are fully committed to continuing and enhancing the excellent standard of care you have always received.

They said: “Our aim is simple yet paramount: to ensure the highest level of satisfaction and care for both our patients and staff. As experienced professionals in general practice and healthcare, we bring a collective wealth of knowledge and skills, which we are eager to employ for the benefit of the Earls Barton and Penvale Park community.

“Our approach to healthcare is holistic, patient-centred, and innovative. We believe in fostering a supportive and collaborative environment, not just for our patients but also for our valued staff. The dedication of the staff here has always been instrumental in providing exceptional care, and we look forward to working alongside each one of you.

“We understand that change can bring a mix of emotions, and we want to assure you that our primary focus is on a seamless transition with minimal disruption to the services you rely on. In the coming weeks, we will be available to meet and interact with you, to listen to your needs, answer any questions, and gather insights that will guide us in making your experience at the Medical Centre even better.

“Together, we are committed to enhancing the health and well-being of our community. We look forward to a future filled with advancements, achievements, and above all, the continued health of our patients and the satisfaction of our staff.

“Thank you for welcoming us into your community. We are truly honoured to serve you and look forward to a long and rewarding journey together.”

Northamptonshire ICB would like to thank Albany House Medical Centre for acting as a caretaker practice to the registered patients at Earls Barton Medical Centre and Penvale Park Surgery while we worked to find a long-term provider.

We recognise this process has taken longer than we anticipated, and we are grateful to them for ensuring continuity of care to patients. Over the next few weeks we will be working with Albany House Medical Centre and Dr J Trivedi, Dr B Sidhu and Mr D Shah to ensure a smooth transition for patients and staff.
