Welcome to Failsworth Group Practice
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Committed to providing the best quality care
Statement of Purpose
Failsworth Group Practice is committed to providing the best quality care. We will do this by working with, and listening to our patients, their carers and families. We will strive to keep improving the care we provide by regular feedback and reflection on what we do.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction
Our annual walk-in Flu Clinics will be taking place at the surgery on Saturday 1st and Saturday 22nd October between 9 and 11am. Appointments are not necessary.
If you are unable to make the above clinics please contact the surgery to book an appointment with our nurses.
Appointments - Automated System and Telephone Consultations
Due to the system being overloaded, patients are no longer able to book appointments via our automated telephone system at 7am. The automated system is still available to check and cancel appointments 24/7; however, to book an appointment please ring the surgery from 8am.
Please note that we are now offering Telephone Consultations for a range of different issues such as medication queries and reviews, sick notes, discussion surrounding a result or referral, and follow up appointments where specified by the doctor.
Please ask one of our Receptionists for more information or to check your suitability.
