Welcome To St Lawrence Medical Practice

Important Update

As you will know, Provide took over the running of the St Lawrence Medical Practice on 1st June 2015, on an interim contract for a year. We did apply to run the service on a permanent basis but unfortunately our bid was unsuccessful and Virgin Care Services Ltd will be managing the practice from 1 June 2016.

Our team has worked hard to try to improve the services at St Lawrence and I would like to assure all patients and staff that we will be working closely with Virgin Care to ensure that the handover is as smooth as possible.

John Niland,  Chief Executive at Provide

For More Information

The commissioner, NHS England, has written to patients.  Their advice is that patients do not need to take any action as a result of the change in service provider. 

If you would like to speak to someone in person about this issue then please speak to the staff at the surgery, or you can speak to:



We are pleased to advise that we will be accepting new patient registrations

How information about you helps us to provide better care

Information about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care.

It is important that we, the NHS, can use this information to plan and improve services for all patients. We would like to link information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hospital and community service, to help us provide a full picture. This will allow us to compare the care you received in one area against the care you received in another, so we can see what has worked best.

Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. Information which does not reveal your identity can then be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services, to make sure we provide the best care possible for everyone.

How your information is used and shared is controlled by law and strict rules are in place to protect your privacy.

We need to make sure that you know this is happening and the choices you have.

Please take time to read these documents below. You need to make a choice.
