Information regarding Appointments

Surgery Closures - 2018
THE LEYLAND COLLABORATIVE
We have been working hard to increase the numbers of appointments available for you. This has involved developing a partnership with other local practices, which we are pleased to tell you has now resulted in the formulation of the group named above. The Leyland Collaborative consists of the following practices Worden Medical Centre, Central Park Surgery, Sandy Lane Surgery, and The Village Surgeries - Croston & Eccleston. The new service will provide access to GP and Nurse appointments at weekends and Bank Holidays ( except Christmas Day) from December 2017 and from January 2018, GP appointments weekday evenings. The service is available to all patients within this group on a proportionate basis however it is important to be aware that the appointment may not necessarily be at this practice. These are all additional appointments so it is not the case that patients of other practices will now utilise all our appointments.
Available appointments will be offered as normal through this surgery and you will be informed if the appointment is at another site.
PATIENT ONLINE ACCESS
- please remember you can book appointments, order repeat prescriptions and access your patient record via Patient Online Services. Please click on the link ' Patient Online Services' at the right-hand side of the page for further information and registration process.
Blood Test Results
If a clinician at the surgery has asked you to have blood tests, please remember it is the patient's responsibility to contact the surgery approximately 5 days after the bloods have been taken for the results. Reminder letters will no longer be sent out for repeat bloods due.
We have commenced using a text and email reminder service at the surgery. This will be used in many positive ways such as:
- Appointment confirmation and reminders. The patient can also cancel their appointment via text or email.
- Campaigns such as flu, shingles etc.
- Gathering data for eg: Friends and Family, smoking status.
- Sending out our Newsletter and patient questionnaires ( email )
For this service to be effective we need up to date mobile telephone numbers and email address. Please contact the surgery to update your contact details. You can use the Update Contact Form below.
IF YOU DO NOT WISH FOR US TO CONTACT YOU VIA EMAIL OR TEXT MESSAGE, PLEASE ADVISE THE SURGERY AND WE CAN BLOCK YOUR NUMBER AND/OR EMAIL BEING USED.
