Welcome to the Junction Alkrington Surgery. We are a 2 site Practice with our main site being located on Grimshaw Lane, and our branch site being located at the Alkrington Health Centre. To view the NHS Choices page for our branch site, click onto the Contact tab and click the link located there.
There has been a doctors surgery at 346 Grimshaw Lane for over a hundred years. The previous partners were (as some of you will remember) Dr McHenry, Dr Wallace, Dr McKee and Dr McCrea. Dr Thomason replaced Dr McKee on his retirement in 1979 and Dr Martin started at the Practice in 1982.
In 1979 the Practice of two partners had a patient list of 5500 people. It employed one morning receptionist and one evening receptionist, plus a cleaner. The Junction and Alkrington Surgeries now have a patient list size of 8000 people and employ 31 members of staff, plus several locum doctors. Our doctors, nurses, healthcare assistants, counsellors and receptionists all split their time between both sites (some work more at one than the other) whilst our admin staff are usually based at one location.
