Welcome Ramsey Rainbow Surgery Patients
We are delighted to announce that Fenland Group Practice welcomed Ramsey Rainbow Surgery on April 1st 2018. We have received permission from NHS England for a full merger in late May, when we will be able to operate as a single surgery from 4 sites in Fenland. We are especially pleased that Rainbow comes with a full complement of staff including the wonderful GP's Dr Aran and Dr Rita Aggarwal, who have served their patients for many years.
For our Manea, Wimblington and Doddington patients this will probably mean no real change, although Arun and Rita may be consulting you on the telephone. For our Benwick patients you will have the equally convenient Rainbow Surgery at your service if needed.
For our Ramsey patients this will probably mean no real change, although telephone consultations could be with any of the GPs.
With this expansion to our service, we hope to be more flexible and look at new services in keeping with current government policies.
