A GP surgery will move to Wycombe Hospital at the end of the month following the sale of the  building.

Wye Valley Surgery in Desborough Avenue, High Wycombe, will continue services from the hospital in Queen Alexandra Road from April 29 after the landlord made the decision to sell the current building on.

Surgery bosses say the practice has “outgrown” its current site and the move will allow services to expand, with minimal disruption to patients.

A statement from Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group said: “For the practice to provide the best service possible to its patients, it requires more space than is available at the current site.

“After careful consideration the practice has chosen to move into the Wycombe General Hospital site in late April.

“It will occupy vacant ground floor space of the building already used for the urgent treatment centre and GP out of hours service.

“The practice aims to create a flagship surgery here, in fit-for-purpose premises.

“This will allow for future expansion to provide a wider range of primary and community services and capacity for more patients as Wycombe grows.”

The same staff will work at the surgery following the move and patients will continue to receive their medication in the usual way while the transfer takes place.

Surgery bosses said they have planned for “minimal disruption” while the transfer takes place – however they have urged patients to check the website for any changes to services provided in the week before and after the move.

A statement published on the surgery’s website said: “We believe this move will give us the space to increase the range of services we can offer you and make staying with Wye Valley Surgery worthwhile for all our patients.

“We very much hope you will wish to stay registered with us, however, if you do choose to leave you can find the practices that are taking patients in your area by visiting www.nhs.uk.”
