Open Day 2018
We are hosting a community event/open day with our PPG members on Saturday 12th May 2018 from 10.00am to 1.00pm
The event is open to everyone and will provide an exciting opportunity for patients to find out more about the services we provide, and meet and discuss self-care with the GP’s and Nurses. There will also be Patient Access demonstrations, showing how to book appointments or order repeat medications online. We are also inviting a number of voluntary organisations to come and chat about the services they can provide.
Blood tests are now available in the evenings and at the weekend
Please note that as of the 1st of April 2018 there will no longer be a “Boughton Well Baby Clinic” running from these premises.

Improving access to general practice: evening and weekend 'extended hours' appointments now available
Patients who are registered at this practice can now book an appointment to see a GP or nurse on weekday evenings (after 6.30pm) or at the weekends (on Saturday and Sunday). Appointments after 6:30pm will take place at other NHS sites such as other nearby surgeries or hospitals. Talk to one of our receptionists to find out more or book an appointment. These appointments are known as 'extended hours'.
By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evenings and weekends at a time that is most convenient to them. This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients. Further information is available at www.england.nhs.uk/gpaccess

GP Practice of the Year 2016
The Practice is delighted to have been awarded “GP Practice of the Year 2016” at the recent West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group Awards which took place at Chester Racecourse.
The nomination focused on how we actively explore ways of addressing challenges and current demands by making use of information technology for patients.
The Practice has an embedded culture of offering on-line services to our patients and was one of the first practices to do this 6 years ago with access to booking appointments and ordering repeat prescriptions, so the natural next step was to provide full access to on-line medical records. Empowering patients to take a more active role in improving/maintaining their health and wellbeing and feeling involved in their decision making was paramount to the Practice. The Practice continues to offer new solutions to patients, launched eConsult back in May 2016 and is currently running an awareness campaign in conjunction with the Patient Participation Group (PPG) to offer virtual access to be involved with our PPG.
