If the clinician needs you to have a face to face consultation this will be arranged. You can download more information about using video consultations from the link on the right

If you are experiencing problem getting though on the telephone

We are aware of the difficulties that some of our patients are experiencing in getting through to the practice on the telephone. We do apologise and we are working hard to resolve this with our IT/telephone supplier.

We are aware that during peak periods, for example, Monday mornings, phone lines tend to be by far the busiest,the increase use of the system for booking Covid Vaccinations as acerbated the demand.

Practices in Pennine Lancashire are working with the supplier to migrate away from what was an old system to a new one and work is planned to conclude by the end of the current month.

This new system has additional capacity for practices when they are experiencing a high volume of calls. We will keep patients up to date with this and in the meantime ask patients to bear with us, particularly during peak periods
