A CITY health trust has announced it is to manage four Sheffield GP surgeries as part of a national initiative to develop services and improve patient care.

Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust, which specialises in mental health and social care, will now also run four family doctor practices.

The change is part of the Government’s Transforming Community Services programme which aims provide seamless care between community and hospital services.

Jordanthorpe Health Centre in Jordanthorpe, The Mulberry Practice in the city centre, Highgate Surgery in Tinsley, and Darnall Community Health in Darnall - have now joined the trust from NHS Sheffield. They will be known collectively as the Clover Group Practice.
