Welcome to The Surgery Chorley
IMPORTANT INFORMATION - Primary Care Networks
Recent changes on how GP services are provided were announced by NHS England earlier this year. Under the new 10 Year NHS Transformation plans, all GP practices are now required to deliver services to a patient population of between 30k – 50k patients. These new services will be delivered by newly formed PRIMARY CARE NETWORKS (PCN’s). PCN’s will work to deliver new and additional services, focusing on the specific needs of each unique patient population in collaboration with other local health service providers (such as Lancashire Teaching Hospitals, Lancashire Care and local Charities.
In May, together with another GP practice Group, we formed the:
Our network has a total patient population of over 33k patients and includes all the practices within our group:
Leyland Surgery and The Surgery Chorley
- Adlington Medical Centre
- Buckshaw Village Surgery
- Croston Medical Centre
- Eaves Lane Surgery
- Medicare Unit Surgery
- Village Surgery Lostock Hall
Patients will soon be able to access newly developed services and access appointments across our wider network and as these become available we will communicate them via our website, in surgery waiting rooms and if appropriate via direct mail.
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
Renovation works have begun at our new premises 32-34 St Thomas’s Road, Chorley, Lancashire, PR7 1HR. As yet we do not have a final moving date but are anticipating it being some time in August. We will inform patients when we have a final date.
The website will be kept updated of the progress as we go along but we would like to thank you for your ongoing support.
The fault with our telephone lines has now been resolved. If you do experience any problems getting through to the Surgery, please kindly bring this to the attention of the Practice Manager.
