Working hard for the people of West Lancashire

13/01/09 MP Rosie Welcomes NHS Primary Care Access Centre

MP Rosie has welcomed the announcement that West Lancashire Partnership has been named as the preferred provider of a new healthcare facility that will increase the availability and range of medical care services to the people of West Lancashire.

MP Rosie commented "Having campaigned hard for improved local health services, I am delighted that, as promised, people across the area will soon have access to permanent health and dental services. They deserve nothing less."

The organisation chosen by NHS Central Lancashire to provide the facility, West Lancashire Partnership, is a joint venture between the West Lancashire out-of-hours GP service and Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust.

The new facility and services, scheduled to be opening in late 2009/2010, will offer patients pre-booked and drop in GP services from 8am to 8pm 7 days a week, as well as offering drop-in advice and treatments for minor injuries and ailments from 8am to 10pm 7 days a week, including access to services such as x-rays.

The facilities on offer will be available to both registered and unregistered patients.
