Welcome to the Garstang Medical Practice NHS Choices page. We hope you find the information useful. For more detailed information about the services we offer, please visit our website:

Garstang Medical Practice was created on 1st October 2017 following the merger of neighbouring Windsor Surgery and Landscape Surgery. We strive hard to provide a high level of care to all our patients and due to our high level of on the day access appointments have the lowest A&E attendance for patients within our local commissioning group.  Thank you to those patients who have left feedback on this site. Positive feedback is always very much appreciated. If, however, you have not been satisfied with the service we have provided, we would ask you to please write to our Practice Management team so that individual problems can be investigated and addressed. Negative feedback which we cannot investigate does not help us to improve our service to patients. Thank you.

As a practice we feel it is important to be involved in the training of future doctors and therefore we are actively involved in teaching undergraduate medical students and qualified doctors who are training to be General Practitioners (GPs).

We are very grateful to patients who feel they can help us by seeing students and giving students an opportunity to learn and gain experience. Most patients tell us that they really enjoy seeing students and find it a very interesting experience. We fully understand however, that for very understandable reasons, patients may sometimes not wish to see students or have them present at a consultation. You will always be advised if the GP you are seeing has students in their surgery, and you will always be able to say that you would prefer not to have students present.
