Increased Access Service

Patients registered at our practice are able to access evening and weekend appointments via our new Increased Access Service.

These are available in limited numbers between 18:30 and 20:00 Monday to Friday and on Saturdays between 09:00 and 17:00 at Chorley Together PCN surgeries:

Dr Dawoud's Surgery, Station Surgery, Leyland Surgery, The Chorley Surgery, Whittle Surgery, Withnell Health Centre & Dr R B Baghdjian & Partner.

We offer a range of GP, Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Practice Nurse, Clinical Pharmacist and other Health Professional Appointments during these hours. These are a mix of Telephone & Face to Face.

The clinician carrying out your assessment and consultation will have full access to your GP record and will be able to complete all necessary investigations and prescription needs.

Please contact your GP practice as normal to check availability. Please also watch out for further updates on how you can book these directly via our online portal.

Our dedicated team of receptionists handle the efficient everyday running and administration of the practice, the receptionist performs a very busy and sometimes difficult job to ensure the smooth running of the practice. They're sometimes faced with situations out of their control, such as, surgeries running late or the doctors being called out on an emergency. If a situation does arise they will keep the patients informed but please remember it is not the fault of the Receptionist.

Your consideration & patience is much appreciated

Thank you
