Hub Appointments With GP's & Other Health Care Professionals


If you're a patient with a chronic, complex or long term condition then in order to ensure your continuity of care it is important that you are seen by your GP here at the surgery.However, patients with non-chronic problems may get an appointment with a GP or other health care professional far more quickly or at short notice at one of the community hubs.


Monday to Friday 6.30pm - 8.00pm at Parkview Medical Practice


Saturday 8.00am - 12.00 at St Mary's Health Centre


Sunday 9.00am to 12.00am at Briarwood Medical Centre


The service offered is for pre-booked appointments and also a limited amount of appointments which are bookable on the day.Please note that once hub availability is full, you may be directed to an alternative service.


In a genuine emergency you should call 999.  Chest pains and/or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

Patient update - Blood test clinics in Preston, Chorley and South Ribble
The drop-in blood clinics at Preston and Chorley hospitals are currently prioritising only clinically urgent tests for patients as a result of reduced staffing.

These urgent clinics will be available between 8.30am and 12.30pm Monday – Friday from 11th November.

You should only attend one of these hospital clinics for a blood test if your doctor or consultant has instructed you that it is urgent and appropriate to do so. Please do not attend if you have not been told to.

If you require a blood test which is not urgent and your doctor or clinician feels you do not need to attend the hospital for this then you should book an appointment at one of the community clinics available across Preston, Chorley or South Ribble. You can book a blood test at a local community clinic by telephone. Please visit www.lscft.nhs.uk/Phlebotomy to obtain the relevant clinic contact details.

If you are required to visit the hospital clinic for an urgent test then please continue to socially distance from others and wear a face mask whilst at the hospital. Only the patient requiring the blood test should enter the clinic unless assistance is required by a carer or relative for the duration.

If the waiting area is busy then you may be asked to leave and return at another time. This is to help reduce overcrowding and keep you and others safe from any risk of coronavirus infection.
Local NHS staff are working extremely hard to maintain services during this difficult time and the continued cooperation of patients is greatly appreciated.
