Temporary change to practice operating model

Dear Patient,

Primary Care 24 is completely committed to looking after you and your health. COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is putting a lot of pressure on the whole NHS, including general practices. We have decided after a careful thought that we will be able to run a better service by bringing the Netherton Practice to join our Thornton Practice. This will help us to keep our levels of staffing safe and provide the best care possible for you.

This decision has not been an easy one to make, but we are confident that operating from one site will be the best way forward.

New arrangements from 19.03.20

Netherton practice patients – GP practice telephone number will remain the same – 01512476098.  Please continue to use this number to contact the practice.  Please do not attend the practice in person as the building will be closed.

Those patients who have appointments booked will be contacted to rearrange the appointment at Thornton.

Thornton patients – these changes will have no impact on you.

Thornton GP Practice
Bretlands Road
L23 1TQ

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience that this will cause for patients, and we hope to have both Thornton and Netherton practices operating as normal as soon as possible.

We very much appreciate your support and cooperation.
