You may have seen on the news that from Monday 17th May, doors at GP Practices are ‘re-opening’. As you will know, our GP practice has been open throughout the pandemic, offering patients telephone and online appointments, with face to face consultations available to those who need them. This was in-line with national requirements to keep patients safe, whilst COVID infection rates were high and before the vaccination was widespread. GP practices are being encouraged to offer patients a choice of whether they would like a remote or face to face consultation. However, before we have more people coming into the surgery to see us in person, we need a bit of time to put in place measures to keep everyone safe. As we wait for further national guidance on doing that, we ask that patients continue to contact us by phone or online as you have been doing. We are facing unprecedented demands to our services and will need to continue to adjust how we use our clinicians’ time to best support our patients – particularly those who need us the most. We will keep you updated as soon as we are clear about how we can re-open our reception areas safely. Thank you for your support.

New Patients

Come in to the surgery and enquire at Reception about registering. You need to be resident within our practice area and not taking any medication that we are unable to prescribe. You also need to be available to attend during our normal surgery hours. You will be registered with the Practice, but you can express a preference to see a specific doctor within the Practice. This does not mean, however, that you will always be able to see this doctor at short notice as they may not be available for various reasons. As a general guide, our Practice area covers locations within PR1 and PR2 postcode districts. There is a detailed map at the surgery and the Receptionists will be happy to advise if you are unsure. If you do not meet our criteria, you may be advised to register with another practice in Preston. There may be other reasons why we cannot accept you onto our list and you will be advised as necessary. You can contact the Primary Care Support Services on 01772 221444 if you have difficulty registering with a doctor.
