Views sought on GP practice plans to move to purpose built facility in north west Ipswich

Issued on behalf of Cardinal Medical Practice

Patients at the Cardinal Medical Practice group in north west Ipswich and surrounding area are being asked for their views on a proposal to consolidate services provided at three GP practices into a new purpose-built GP hub. 

Clinicians have started a 10-week engagement exercise that could see services currently provided at Deben Road, Chesterfield Drive and Norwich Road practices move to the former Tooks bakery building, Old Norwich Road, Ipswich. 

They say that the location of the proposed new site is approximately a mile away from each of the three practices – an area well served by buses.  

James Cucchiarra, Managing Director, Suffolk Primary Care, said: “The three buildings where we currently provide services from are no longer fit for purpose and in need of upgrade.

“We want to find out from local people how this proposal would impact them and if they believe the site is suitable for their needs as well as to share more detail about our ideas.

“We believe the proposed location is well served by public transport and accessible to the communities we currently serve. 

“It would also allow us to review the way we currently provide our services.

“If the plans did progress, it would mean more clinicians would be on site making it safer and there would be additional car parking available to our patients.”

Cardinal Practice Group has invited patients to provide feedback through a survey – available online through the practice’s website.  

Paper copies of the survey are available from the practices upon request.

Closing date for responses – Tuesday 24 May.
