Crossroads Medical Practice

Patients registered at Crossroads Medical Practice will be transferred over to Richmond Medical Centre from 1st April 2020.

Patients at Crossroads Medical Practice in North Hykeham have been informed that from 1st April 2020, their care will be transferred over to Richmond Medical Centre. The move comes after the GP partners at Crossroads left the practice in November having been in special measures for over 3 years. Crossroads is currently being temporarily run by Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS).

Richmond Medical Centre are working with the Clinical Commissioning Group and LCHS to ensure any disruption to services will be kept to a minimum and we want to reassure patients that there will be a wide range of appointments available both at the Richmond premises on Moor Lane and the current Crossroads premises on Lincoln Road.  The latter will become known as the ‘Village site’ of Richmond Medical Centre.

An appropriate number of new staff will be recruited, both from the current Crossroads staff and externally, to ensure that the number of available appointments and clinicians will match and even surpass those currently available to Richmond patients.

As a larger Practice, with more clinical rooms and staff, the quality and range of primary care services available to patients will improve. There will be a wider variety of clinicians and appointment times.
