Following the end to mandatory social distancing and mask wearing in daily life, please be advised that if you are visiting a healthcare setting such as GP surgery, community clinic or hospital, you will still be required to wear a facemask and adhere to social distancing guidelines.

 

Despite the easing of restrictions in our daily lives, we must continue to follow a rigorous process in health and care settings to keep our patients and our colleagues safe.

    

Therefore, all health and social care staff, volunteers, patients and visitors will still be required to continue to follow the below: 

  • HANDS: Wash hands regularly with soap and water or hand gel if hand washing facilities are not available 
  • FACE: Wear a face covering in practice buildings  
  • SPACE: Stay at least 2m away from people wherever possible and ensure you follow the social distancing measures in place 


Thank you for helping us continue to keep our patients and staff safe during these continued challenging times.

Increased Access Survey

Worden Medical Centre is a member of a local group of practices known as the Leyland Primary Care Network.

We are continuing our Increased Access Service which enables all patients across the group to book into additional routine appointments in advance. These will be available:

·         Between 6:30pm and 8pm on weekday evenings.

·         Between 9am and 5pm on Saturdays.

·         Possibly at other times depending on patient preferences.

The overall aim is to enable patients who would prefer appointments outside of the traditional practice hours to have them. As the service will be provided on a network basis, actual appointment times at each practice are likely to vary.

The purpose of this consultation is to ask for your views to help us shape this service. 

This survey takes approximately 5 minutes to complete. 

Thank you for your time.

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.

 


Text Reminders

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.
