Elm, Rosewood and Gadhvi Merger Meeting

Registered at Elm, Gadhvi or Rosewood Practices, located at Fountayne Road Health Centre, 1a Fountayne Road, N16 7EA?

The three practices will be merging as of 1st April 2024 and will be operating as a single GP practice under the name of Fountayne Road Medical Practice.

This practice merger will enable the three surgeries to share resources and expertise to better provide seamless care to our patients. Once the practices have merged your healthcare will not be affected. All of the same doctors, healthcare professionals and staff will still be part of the new merged team.

Over the coming weeks we will be working closely to integrate systems and combine processes. During this transition period we aim to keep any disruption to patient services to a minimum and will inform you in advance if there are any issues.

We will also be holding patient meetings. If you are interested in attending the patient engagement event, please click on the below link

Wait well, stay well

If you, or someone you care for, is waiting for treatment or a procedure, we recognise that this is difficult, NHS staff are working hard to get everyone seen as quickly as possible. We are currently prioritising people with the highest clinical need, and who have been waiting the longest.

We understand the wait might be stressful, especially if your condition is causing you pain, or stopping you from carrying out day-to-day activities and that you may have concerns. That is why we have created this website.
