Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?

Test Results

Test results are available Monday to Friday during office hours.  For tests ordered by the practice you will normally be told how to obtain the results.  In most cases we would be able to give the result over the telephone.  Some results are better discussed or need clarification and you may be asked to see the doctor.  This does not imply there is a problem

Appointments

Each patient is registered with the surgery and you are free to see any of the doctors.  If your usual doctor is unavailable then one of the other doctors would be able to offer you assistance.  Consultations at Lytham and  at Freckleton Health Centre are by appointment only. Prebookable appointments are available at both the main and branch sites.

 

If you have any comments or suggestions (positive or negative) regarding the appointments system, please contact the surgery and we will be happy to listen to your views.


Cancelling your Appointment

If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone to cancel the appointement, helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot.
