Welcome to Lytham Road Surgery
Quick update: We are pleased to announce we have an additional G.P. and Practice Nurse joining the team in early January. We are settling well into our new premises which have allowed us the scope to expand our clinical and support teams. Just for clarity having seen some social media posts about our status as a practice. We haven’t merged with or been bought by anyone. We are the same practice, just operating out of much improved rented facilities.
New Address is
Lytham Road Surgery
Fatima Health Centre
228 Garstang Road
Contact number is going to stay the same 01772 716033.
All face to face appointments from the 29th November will take place and the new premises.
We look forward to welcoming you to our new premises.
At Lytham Road Surgery we are constantly looking at how we can improve our service to you. We recognise that it can be difficult to contact us via phone due to unprecedented demands as a symptom of operational constraints caused by the pandemic.
We have introduced some measures which will help us manage this demand and more importantly make things more convenient and less stressful for our patients.
- If you have a non-urgent enquiry for us you can now submit this by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org this will save you the time needed to phone us.
- If you need to speak with someone other than to book an appointment, please contact us after 10:30am as this will allow us to manage demand on our phonelines more efficiently.
- We are now moving more appointments to book online via the “NHS App”, “Patient Access” and the “My GP App” We are currently using this for flu vaccines and long-term condition reviews. We have also recently added in cervical screening.
Hopefully, these measures demonstrate our desire to improve things for you. Thank you for your continued support. Despite what you may read in the press about General Practice, the team is working extremely hard and we are looking to increase our provision of face to face consultations.
Yours sincerely, on behalf of the Lytham Road team.
Coronavirus pandemic - if you have respiratory symptoms, a high temperature, a new continuous dry cough or loss or change to your sense of smell or taste. Please stay at home and book a Covid-19 test. Contact NHS111 online for advice regarding your symptoms. https://111.nhs.uk/ If you do not have online facilities, please ring 111 however please expect a slight delay due to high call volumes.
As a team we wish to keep all our staff and patients safe and well during the coronavirus pandemic. We are therefore asking that patients DO NOT come into the surgery without speaking to the Practice on the telephone first. This will mean that the telephone lines are very busy so please bear with us during this difficult time.
