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 onsitedispensary 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 very proud to be 1 of only 3 practices highlighted as a good example in the recent CQC report. Click here for a local news article and you can view the full report here.
