What is happening?
We are delighted to share that we are working with NHS Wigan Borough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Flexdane and Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Teaching Foundation Trust on the development of a new health and wellbeing centre on Parr Bridge Retail Park, Mosley Common Road, Tyldesley.
The practice will relocate into this new health and wellbeing centre once it is complete. Building works are expected to start early 2022 with completion early 2023.
Why is this happening?
Our existing practice premises are not fit for purpose. We don’t have enough space to deliver our services and we need to consider that our practice list is growing with more housing developments in the area planned.
The opportunity to relocate into a new building will give us the space to increase our existing services.
The new health and wellbeing centre is 960 meters away from our current practice and has more parking and facilities than we currently do. Some community health services will also be located in the new building which is fantastic for the local area.
Where can I find more information?
We appreciate this is a change and some of our patients may need to travel a little bit further to access the practice when we relocate into the building. We would like to hear from you about this and get your feedback.
A dedicated website has been set up which has some more information about the building, including the floorplan and a 3D virtual tour of the site.
How do I give my feedback?
Once you have spent a few minutes reviewing the information please do give us your feedback.
You can click here to complete the online survey or pop into the practice if you would prefer a paper copy.
We would like initial feedback by 12th November 2021.
I would like to talk to someone about this?
If you need any support completing the survey or if you would rather speak to someone please email us on [email protected].
If you can, please get in touch with us by email to keep the phone lines free for those who need them.
We know there are a couple of key questions you may have at the outset…
Frequently Asked Questions
Will you need to re-register as a patient once the practice moves?
No – if you are registered with us, you won’t need to do anything at all.
Will it be the same Boothstown Medical Centre Team?
Yes – the practice team will stay the same when we move into the new building. Our hope is to add to our team when we have more space.
