We have acquired The Village Medical Centre in Littleborough. As a provider of services for the Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Clinical Commissioning Group we bought The Village Medical Centre in Littleborough.


Bury-based law firm Clough & Willis brokered the deal, which was for an undisclosed sum. Its partner David Leviten handled the commercial property aspects of the deal while Guy Lachlan - associate corporate commercial solicitor at the firm – provided company and commercial law advice. Negotiations were conducted with the local clinical commissioning group, the Care Quality Commission and NHS England for the two-stage handover for an undisclosed sum.


Financial and accounting advice was provided to GP Care Services by Peter Carlin at Thompson Jones. Funding was provided through Wayne Dixon at Barclays in Oldham. The seller was represented by Lisa Geary and Ruth Griffiths at Capsticks and by Ramsay Brown & Partners for financial and accounting advice.


Gail Whitehead, chief officer of GP Care Services, said:

"We are pleased to have added this personal medical services practice to our growing portfolio of health services in the local communities in which we operate. We shall aim to brand the practice at Littleborough with the same high standards that we provide in our other services across the boroughs."


Lachlan said:

"The transaction required considerable coordination between all the parties including the Clinical Commissioning Group and the public sector bodies to secure the smooth transition of the business. We have acted for GP Care Services since its formation in 2008 and are pleased that it continues to expand its operations so successfully."  

Great news for GP Care Services, The Village Medical Centre and all those involved!
