Welcome to the latest of our weekly newsletters. We regard it as a priority that all our patients are kept fully informed of all developments at Buckshaw Village Surgery, Croston and Adlington Medical Centres, our sites at Lostock Hall and on matters affecting former Eaves Lane Surgery patients. We hope these regular updates will continue to prove useful.
New Surgery on Eaves Lane
We are delighted to advise that the new Eaves Lane Surgery will be opening this autumn and will form part of an exciting new development in Chorley.
The old Eaves Lane surgery, which was situated in a terrace at the north end of the road, was deemed too small to work in during the Covid pandemic and unfortunately had to be closed on a permanent basis.
However, work has been progressing well on the development containing the new surgery, which stands on the site of the old bus depot towards the southern end of Eaves Lane, and it is now nearing completion.
With two GP consultation rooms, a treatment room and a digital consultation room, the surgery is modern and fully equipped for all patients.
Along with the new surgery, the local community will benefit from new amenities within the development which include a park, a children’s nursery, apartments, a community centre, assisted living facilities, a hair salon and a café.
We will have a specific date for the opening soon and we will advise this via our website and social media channels as soon as this is known. We will also shortly have details of an open day we are holding for patients of all branches to visit and see the project for themselves.
We would like to remind patients requiring travel vaccination appointments that they need to complete the appropriate form on our website at www.nmhealthinnovations.co.uk.
You can find it by clicking the section marked ‘Travel Vaccination Form’ on the left of the site’s home page. Once completed, please click the ‘submit’ button and the form will come through to our staff at your chosen surgery.
Alternatively, you can pick up a copy from any of our surgeries and drop off at reception.
When received, one of our nurses will check the form and get back to you to advise if vaccinations are needed and if so, which ones, and will make an appointment for you.
Please note the form must be received at least six weeks before the date of travel.
The situation in Ukraine has not improved and people over there, especially refugees, are still in desperate need.
We are therefore continuing to accept toiletries, ladies' sanitary products, baby items, non-perishable foods, tins of dog and cat food and also items of clothing as long as they are clean and in good condition.
The Chorley & District Support for Ukraine group are trying to get the supplies over as quickly as possible and have done a great job so far.
You can drop items off at any of our surgery sites at any time during opening hours.
Supporting a local homeless charity
We are continuing to accept donations of shoes, clean socks and coats for the Chorley Help the Homeless Centre who we are supporting on medical care. Please leave items at any of our surgeries.
