Changes at Castle Health Centre
From 1st April 2015, there will be 2 changes at Castle Health Centre.
The contract with NHS England for the registered list at Castle Health Centre was put out for procurement last year. A new provider has been awarded the contract, and from 1st April 2015, IntraHealth will be responsible for providing health care services to the registered list at Castle Health Centre.
From 1st April 2015, the surgery will open 8am - 8pm, 7 days per week, excluding Bank/Public holidays.
