As reported last month, the IMH Group, which had been working in partnership with five GP practices, has agreed to withdraw from primary care services in Swindon.

The five practices involved with IMH are Abbey Meads Medical Group, Taw Hill Medical Practice, Moredon Medical Centre, Eldene Surgery and Phoenix Surgery.

Since this decision was made, the CCG has been exploring alternative arrangements for each of the practices and has recently held positive conversations with a number of potential local providers.

Although the details of these arrangements are yet to be finalised, it is hoped that an announcement will be made to local people later in the summer.
