​​​More in Merton is launched!​

Merton CCG are delighted to announce the launch of its More in Merton campaign. More in Merton seeks to make sure that we make full use of local services and especially the ground-breaking outpatient and diagnostic services at the award winning Nelson Health Centre.  By referring more people to services in Merton we can help create the conditions that will help us develop even more services, giving patients better access to the best possible care and treatment.

This innovative healthcare centre, which opened 1 April 2015, is a spacious and modern environment allowing more people to be seen, diagnosed and treated as quickly as possible. The Nelson Health Centre offers great services in a great building and convenient local location.

Merton resident Andy Ray visited the Nelson Health Centre recently.  He said: "This is just to convey my more-than-pleasant surprise to see the re-developed Nelson Hospital (when I went in for a blood test this morning). It is immaculate in every sense of the word. I am genuinely pleased with the design, and it is so convenient having all the facilities in one place. With such a nice building, it is no wonder all the staff provided such friendly service. I have told all my neighbours about the Nelson!"

All the outpatient and diagnostic services in the Nelson are provided by St George's, working to the Trust's high standards of care and are contracted to be consultant led clinics – this means quicker access to high quality care. In addition, Ophthalmology services are provided at the Nelson by Moorfields Eye Hospital (who are sub-contracted by St George's), meaning local residents can benefit from their internationally recognised expertise in Merton.
