About your practice

Winstanley Medical Centre is in a purpose built building at the heart of Winstanley's community.

We are a single handed GP Practice but our team also consists of a Practice Nurse,Health Care Assistant and six administrative staff.

Reception is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 6.30pm.  We also offer a late surgery every Tuesday evening from 6.30pm to 8pm.  For consulting hours click THE PRACTICE" tab above and select "INFORMATION".

We look after approx 3000 patients and offer various clinics.

We tutor Medical students from the University of Manchester and they may be involved in some of the clinics you attend.

We have regular meetings with other members of the Primary Health Care Team. (E.g. District Nurses, Health Visitors, Antenatal and Palliative Care).

We aim to provide the best possible service to our patients and hope that you will feel that we achieve that aim.

The care of your health is a partnership between you, your GP and the Primary Health Care Team including District Nurses,Midwifes and Health Visitors. The success of that partnership depends on co-operation between us.

Our responsibility to you is to treat you with courtesy and respect.

Your responsibility to us is to treat all surgery staff with the same courtesy.
