The Surgery is located at 28 Holes Lane, Woolston, Warrington, Cheshire, WA1 4NE. The practice was providing a service to approximately 10,800 patients at the time of our inspection. The practice is situated in an area with average levels of deprivation when compared to other practices nationally. The percentage of patients with a long standing health condition is similar to the local and national averages.
The practice is run by five GP partners. There is an additional salaried GP. There are two practice nurses, one health care assistant, a practice manager and a team of reception/administration staff.
The practice is open from 8am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday. The practice had signed up to providing longer surgery hours as part of the government agenda to encourage greater patient access to GP services. As a result patients could access a GP at a Health and Wellbeing Centre in the centre of Warrington during evenings and at weekends by pre-booked appointment. Outside of practice hours patients can access the Bridgewater Trust for primary medical services.
The practice has a Personal Medical Services (PMS) contract. The practice provides a range of enhanced services, for example: extended hours, childhood vaccination and immunisation schemes, checks for patients who have a learning disability and avoiding unplanned hospital admissions.
