Sothall Medical Centre to join the Primary Care Sheffield (PCS) group of practices from 1 January 2024.
We have communicated previously about our plan that Primary Care Sheffield (PCS) – Sheffield’s GP Federation, will be taking on the management of the Sothall Practice, and why we felt this was the right way forward. Please see Minutes « Sothall Medical Centre
We had hoped this would happen earlier this year. However, we have faced unforeseen issues relating to the transfer of the building that the practice operates from, which have slowed our plans down.
We are now pleased to announce that these final challenges have been overcome, and the transfer of Sothall to be operated by PCS will be completed on the 31st of December, then move to PCS control on 1st January 2024.
Whilst there will be changes behind the scenes, as patients you will notice little difference, as the management of the practice changes to PCS. The current practice team will remain in place including the GP partners, who will continue actively in their roles until each of their planned retirement dates.
Primary Care Sheffield already run seven practices in the city. These practices have continued to improve the quality of their services despite being in some of the most deprived areas of Sheffield.
The hard work of the practice teams alongside the PCS infrastructure have led to them improving from being rated as ‘requires improvement’ by the independent Care Quality Commission to being awarded ‘outstanding’ and ‘good’ ratings in their most recent inspections. This is part of the reason that Primary Care Sheffield was named as Primary and Community Provider of the Year 2022 at the national Health Service Journal Awards.

We will make sure that any questions you have at this stage are answered fully. Please let us know if there is anything you want to ask.
