Welcome to Windsor Surgery

Windsor Surgery

We are proud to offer a friendly and welcoming environment providing excellent local healthcare to the residents of Garstang and the surrounding area. Our clinical team of 8 doctors, 2 nurse practitioners, 5 nurses and practice pharmacist are well supported by our large reception and admin team. We are based within Garstang Medical Centre - a modern, purpose built premises, with easy access for disabled patients. We also have our own onsite pharmacy providing a range of additional NHS services.

As a practice we feel it is important to be involved in the training of future doctors and therefore we are actively involved in teaching undergraduate medical students and qualified doctors who are training to be General Practitioners (GPs). We strive hard to provide a high standard of care to all our patients and due to our high level of on the day access appointments have the lowest A&E attendance for patients within our local commissioning group. 

We are delighted to have been rated as ‘good’ by the CQC following our recent inspection in October 2014. We were awarded ‘outstanding’ in 10 areas and ‘outstanding’ overall for how effective our services are for patients. You can view the full report here.

We are always happy to welcome new patients from people residing within the practice boundary, click here for details. 

Urgent news:

A recent news article regarding treatment for asthma may have led to some concerns for patients with respiratory conditions. Inhaler prescribing within the surgery has always followed the guidelines advised by Asthma UK. Please continue on your current medication until your next review.

The surgery is aware of companies cold calling patients to offer prescription collection services and in some cases suggesting this is with the agreement of the Practice.  Windsor Surgery does not endorse any company cold calling patients and requesting their medical details and we will not post prescriptions directly to a pharmacy company.  Please do not give your personal and medical details to anyone calling you -  unless you are happy to do so and you are certain you  have properly identified to whom you are talking.  If you have any concerns please contact the surgery on 01995 603350.

Choose Well   Choose Well

If you are normally healthy, there are a range of NHS services on your doorstep where you can go for fast and effective advice and treatment. A&E departments and 999 services are for those who are seriously ill or emergencies. Around 1 in 4 patients leave the A&E department without requiring any treatment. It is important to ensure that you seek treatment from the right place so that busy emergency departments can be used to help those who need it most.
