The Leyland Collaborative

Practices in Chorley & South Ribble are working together in groups to offer weekend, bank holiday & weekday evening appointments for their patients. These additional appointments may be held at another surgery within the Leyland group rather than at Sandy Lane. Please be aware, regardless of the time or location of the appointment, you must ring Sandy Lane in normal opening hours to book or cancel an appointment. The group consists of the following practices SANDY LANE SURGERY, MOSS SIDE MEDICAL CENTRE, WORDEN MEDICAL CENTRE, CENTRAL PARK SURGERY & THE VILLAGE SURGERIES Croston and Eccleston.

Hepatitis A Vaccine shortage

We would like to make all patients who are travelling abroad aware that there is currently a national shortage of the Hepatitis A vaccine.  The companies who manufacture the vaccine are unable to say when this will become available therefore patients may not be able to have this before they travel.

Patient Online Services

We now have over 3000 patients who are using our on-line service Patient Access to book appointments, order prescriptions, There is also an option to view your medical record including test results and hospital letters. For more information CLICK HERE

Do you know who your allocated GP is?

As part of our contract we must now inform all patients which GP they are registered with at the surgery. This is simply an administrative task and you are still able to continue seeing the GP of your choice. If you do not know who your allocated GP is, ask someone next time you come to the surgery or email ann.walker3@nhs.net to find out - thank you

Telephone Appointments

Are available for minor queries or reviews if you do not need to be physically examined.

Use your Pharmacy for minor ailments

Remember your local pharmacist is trained to treat minor ailments such as coughs and colds, blood pressure checks, constipation, rashes / skin problems and headaches etc. Please ask at your local pharmacy.

NHS Health checks

What is the Patient Support Liaison Team / Cancer Champions

In May 2018 we introduced a non-clinical team to help support patients who are facing a recent chronic diagnosis. This could be cancer, dementia, or any other serious incapacitating disease.

If you have had a recent life changing diagnosis we will send you a letter to introduce ourselves, including photographs, so that you know who we are. We will follow up the letter with a telephone call shortly after to see if there is anything you need or anything we can help you, your carers or family with.

We can order your medication, make appointments, listen to any problems/concerns you may have. We can provide you with information about services that may help and sort out things quickly on your behalf. 

If we do not know the answer to your questions we will find someone who does. Our clinical Lead is Jenny Williams, ANP, who is always here to advise us.

If you do not feel like talking you can always simply email us with any queries or problems. 

We promise to always listen and take the time to help you in any way we can.
