INFORMATION  FOR  PATIENTS:  The merger with Borough Lane Surgery is still going ahead and will happen in June this year.   The new name for the combined Practice will be the 'Crocus Medical Practice'.  Alterations are being made to Great Chesterford Surgery to create another consulting room.  Doctors and Staff from both practices will be working across both sites.  All patients from the new practice will be able to attend either premises too.  All the Doctors, Nurses & Staff at both surgeries are committed to making this merger work for the benefit of our patients and to meet the constraints and requirements imposed upon us.  More information to follow in due course.
