We have teamed up with Aspire Pharmacy who operate in house and deliver to all areas (or you can collect from Railway Road).

As they are based in house any requests or problems are dealt with

We are a training practice based across West Lancashire.

We work with one set of clinicians and information systems across five sites.

We are committed to improving access and quality. We aim to provide a wide range of enhanced services for our patients.  

We operate the Talk and Treat telephone consultation system.

Patient Group and Survey

 Patient Friends:

Any patient that attends the surgery, or contacts the surgery by telephone and has any concerns or issues that they are unhappy about , or they have experienced something that has gone wrong for them, they will now be helped by our “PATIENT FRIEND”.  We want the patient to have a point of contact at the practice where they can voice their concerns or deal with any issues they may have, and to know that we are listening and that changes will be made if need be.
