Merger - Stronger Together

Following on from the Patient Group Meeting held on Wed 5th November 2014. We would like to announce that Shaftesbury Medical Centre is seeking a Practice Merger with Roxbourne Medical Centre. 

LATEST UPDATE: Since the meeting it has now been decided that we will be retaining two sites.

All patients will remain registered with the GP Partners Dr Musa and Dr Nizamuddin and the care of our patients will continue at this site with the option of also being seen at the Roxbourne Site.

There are several reasons for this merger including improving Patient Access and Patient Services and Better Premises.

Harrow CCG are aware of this situation and have given us their support. 

We will be holding further Patient Group Meetings to keep you updated and for the opportunity to discuss any issues with us. If you wish to e-mail us any question please send them to: 

As a Practice we very much appreciate and welcome your support and input.
