The partners at Hastings Medical Centre have taken the difficult decision to withdraw from the proposed merger with their colleagues in Holderness and instead concentrate on continuing to provide high quality care for their patients in Hull and surrounding areas.
We wish our colleagues in Hedon and Withernsea well with their plans to continue the merger of three remaining practices. Having worked together successfully for a number of years, we will continue to collaborate on projects which affect our patients across the locality.
As a strong practice, we feel that we are well placed to continue to provide high quality, patient centred care for our patients. We plan to use the opportunity to reflect and consider the options for change to enhance the range of services available for patients and give greater opportunities for our staff.

Hull Health Forward Confederation (HHFC) Update 31 October 2017
We, as the Hull Health Forward Confederation, are pleased to announce that three more like minded practices have decided to join the Confederation. These practices bring with them an enormous amount of clinical and managerial expertise. This will ensure that not only will patient care continue to be foremost inn our minds but also incredibly, practices are still able to maintain their independence and individuality.
Welcoming these new practices into the confederation takes the number of registered patients of over 52,000 or approximately 2-% of the registered patient population of Hull. This is no mean feat given the short period of time that has elapsed from the beginning of the process and the difficulties associated with the sprawling geographical phenomena that is Hull. Furthermore, it should mean that our vision for developing patient care as we move into the next decade will have some gravitas.
The member practices are:
The Avenue Medical Centre
Clifton House Medical Centre
Princes Medical Centre
Newland Health Centre
Holderness Open Door Surgery
Wolseley Medical Centre
Syndenham Group Practice
Hastings Medical Centre
Oaks Medical Centre
