Altrincham Health and Wellbeing Centre to welcome its first patients

Two GP practices will move into the Altrincham Health and Wellbeing Centre in November.

From 8am on Monday 4 November, St Johns Medical Centre will welcome patients to its new premises on the first floor of the state-of-the-art building, followed by Barrington Medical Centre on Monday 11 November.

Together, the practices see more than 24,000 patients, who will benefit from free secure on-site parking, enhanced disability access, and continued first-class care in the purpose-built healthcare facility.

The spacious centre will also provide the practices with additional clinical rooms and enable them to increase clinical work, such as research and training.

Dr Marik Sangha, GP Partner at St Johns Medical Centre, said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming patients to our new modern home. This move heralds an exciting new chapter for the practice enabling us to continue to provide quality care for our patients within larger, modern premises with more than treble the amount of parking we currently provide.”

Dr Nick Macdonald, GP Partner from Barrington Medical Centre, added: “We are excited to be moving into the new purpose-built premises where we can continue to deliver holistic family medicine with continuity of care. The state-of-the-art environment will be beneficial for patients and staff as we develop our services in line with modern primary care.”

St Johns Medical Centre at St Johns Road, Altrincham will close to patients at 1pm on Friday 1 November ahead of opening at the Altrincham Health and Wellbeing Centre on Monday 4 November at 8am. Barrington Medical Centre will close on Friday 8 November at 1pm before welcoming patients to its new premises at 8am on Monday 11 November. Patients requiring medical advice when the practices are closed are asked to call 111 to speak to NHS111.

Martyn Pritchard, Accountable Officer at Trafford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), said: “This is a really positive step forward for the centre and for Altrincham, where our priority is to provide residents with high quality healthcare services from the building that meets their needs. 

“We continue to progress talks with further healthcare services who we soon hope to be able to announce will also be moving into the building.”
