What is FAST?

FAST requires an assessment of three specific symptoms of stroke:

  1. Facial weakness - can the person smile? Has their mouth or eye drooped?
  2. Arm weakness - can the person raise both arms
  3. Speech problems - can the person speak clearly and understand what you say?
  4. Time to call 999



Due to the merger of the Practice with Parkside Surgery a new website has been created which reflects the new merged services of Prestige Medical Group.

Practice Merger Information: September 2018 Update

Over the next few weeks we will officially change our name to Prestige Medical Group. We shall continue to use our surgeries by their existing names.

We offer a wide range of appointments on a daily basis with:

  • 9 GPs
  • 4 Nurse Practitioners
  • 11 Nurses
  • 1 Physician Associate
  • 1 Pharmacist

Practice Area / Boundary

The practice boundary stops at:
  • Kings Causeway in Brierfield to the North
  • Kiddrow Lane / Liverpool Road to the West
  • Holme Chapel in Cliviger to the South
  • Hurstwood to the East

If you are in any doubt as to whether you live within the practice boundary, please speak to reception.

Ordering a repeat prescription will change on 14 August 2017

Following audits of repeat prescription ordering and in efforts to reduce wastage of medicines, East Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group (EL CCG) are supporting practices to cease accepting third party prescription ordering from local pharmacies.  In other areas this new repeat prescribing procedure has resulted in reduced wastage and has also helped to free up practice time. The CCGs Medicines Management Team is currently working with Oxford Road Medical Centre to implement the new system which promotes patient empowerment and ownership of repeat medication needs.  

Newly Registered Patients

In order to register with this Practice as a permanent patient, you must plan to stay in the local area for a minimum of 6 months.  New patients registering with the Practice will be asked to complete a Health Questionnaire, which enables the Practice to manage ongoing medical conditions. GMS1

You will be registered with the Practice as a whole and will be assigned to the list of one of the Doctors.  When making an appointment you may request a consultation with the Doctor of your choice.

Named Accountable GP

As part of the GP Contract, Practices are required to provide all their patients with a named accountable GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the Surgery provides to them. Although you have been allocated a named GP, this does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the Practice should you wish to do so.

The Practice has no obligation to write to each individual patient advising them of their allocated GP. However, some patients will have been advised by text, by letter or during a consultation.  If you have not already been advised, please ask at your next appointment or, alternatively, contact Reception who will be happy to assist.

Temporary Residents

We are always happy to see any relatives or friends staying with you if they need a Doctor or Nurse.  They will need to fill out a short form for the information to be returned to their own Doctor.  Please arrive 10 minutes before your appointment to allow time for completion of the necessary forms.

Patient Data

We have recently added a New Page to our Website, Patient Data. Please click on the link to navigate to this page

Children and the Waiting Room

We have a small play area in the waiting room which is unsupervised.  We do try to keep a selection of toys available which all are welcome to use, but we do invite parents to bring (and take away again!) toys to amuse their own children.

Zero Tolerance

The Doctors and Staff of this Surgery re-affirm their commitment to do everything possible to protect themselves, patients and visitors from unacceptable behaviour and their zero tolerance of any incident that may cause hurt, alarm, damage or distress.  This includes actual or threatened physical violence or verbal abuse, which leads to fear for a person's safety.

In this situation we are obliged to notify the patient in writing of their removal from the list, and record in a patient's medical records the fact of the removal and circumstances leading to it.  The PCT is then responsible for providing further medical care for such patients.

Disabled Patients

The Surgery is fully equipped for disabled access, including toilet facilities.
