A GP surgery in Caversham in Reading in Berkshire which has been placed in special measures, is to be taken over by Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.
The Priory Avenue surgery was placed into special measures by the Care Quality Commission earlier this year.
Inspectors found failings so serious they said patients' safety was at risk.
It was one of the first in the country to be told by the CQC to make major improvements - or risk being closed down.
Among the issues: Not enough staff, out of date patient records - and difficulty in seeing the same doctor.
Berkshire Healthcare was appointed to run Priory Avenue Surgery, following a process to determine which provider could best fit the urgent needs of the patient population at the surgery.
Working with the local North and West Reading Clinical Commissioning Group, NHS England has been able to secure this new interim provider.
