Primary Care - The Village Medical Centre, Great Denham

Services provided at GP practices are arranged through contracts with individual providers to run individual practices and services. 

The GP services at The Village Medical Centre, Great Denham are currently provided by NHSolutions, their caretaker contract will end on 31 March 2019.

To help ensure the most suitable provider is chosen, we engaged with patients at the practice to capture their feedback and gather opinions on new ways of working.   

A report was produced following the engagement, it can be found here.

Putnoe Walk-in Centre Consultation - This consultation has now closed

The public consultation showed resoundingly that residents in Bedford want to retain a walk in service in the north of the borough.  We listened and have agreed a new contract, which means that walk in services will continue to be delivered at Putnoe Medical Centre and run in tandem with the new Urgent Treatment Centre on the south wing of Bedford Hospital. 

The report from the consultation can be found here.
