Statement on Ivel Medical Centre, Biggleswade

A temporary contract has been awarded for the provision of GP services at Ivel Medical Centre in Biggleswade.

From Thursday 1 June 2023, Malzeard Road Medical Centre will provide GP services at Ivel Medical Centre, with the contract set to last up to 24 months.

The current GP partners at the medical centre resigned their contract to provide GP primary care services earlier this year.

Nicky Poulain, Director of Primary Care for Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes ICB, said: “Malzeard Road Medical Centre is an established GP partnership which has experience of delivering healthcare across different sites in Luton.

“Dr Kirti Singh, the centre’s full-time principal GP, brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience, and she will be supported by nursing and administrative teams, some of which are staff already employed at Ivel Medical Centre.”

The change in contract means the dispensary at Ivel Medial Centre will be ending on 31 May 2023.

During the temporary contract, Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes ICB will work with patients and local residents to design services for a long-term contract.

Letters explaining the changes are being sent to every household with a patient registered at the practice. Patients do not need to do anything: services will transfer over to the new provider on 1 June 2023.
