As part of the trust’s vision to further integrate primary care and community services, a number of East Cheshire community services have been successfully relocated from Priorsleigh Medical Centre in Poynton to a new, shared workspace at McIlvride Medical practice, also in Poynton.
Services which have been relocated are:
- Community Midwifery
- Nurse-led Heart Failure clinics
- Audiology (adult and paediatric)
- Paediatric Speech & Language Therapy
- Some Outpatient Physiotherapy
Community Nursing and Therapies as well as some outpatient physiotherapy clinics remain at Priorsleigh.
Trust community services have worked with primary care colleagues to deliver a seamless transition, ensuring services continue to be delivered locally in Poynton with minimal disruption to patient care.
