Welcome to Westmoreland GP Centre
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisation.
From Monday 25th November 2019 we will release 'on the day' appointments at 8am that can be booked online Monday to Friday.
We are aware that the telephone system currently used by the practice is not sufficient and would like to offer our sincere apologies for the current and historic issues with getting through to the practice.
We have been working with a number of providers over the last few years in an attempt to install a new, up to date and fit for purpose telephone system which will include a call waiting service. Thankfully we have found a provider that can install such a system and bypass the issues of no fibre-optic cabling here in the practice.
We are hoping the new system will be installed by the end of January 2020 and are adamant that this will improve access to the practice and hopefully put an end to the misery caused by our current telephone system.
Thank you for your understanding and we hope the online booking option will help ease the waiting times in the meantime.
The Practice will close at 1.00pm on Thursday 28th November 2019 for our contractual half day training.
Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Congratulations to Olivia aged 4 for winning the Westmoreland GP Centre Art Competition 2019.
Olivia is the lucky winner of a Trophy, £50 Odeon cinema voucher, Unicorn Scooter, helmet and pads!
The winning picture is displayed in the waiting room for all too see and I am sure you will agree that Olivia was a worthy winner.
All patients have a named and accountable GP, however they are not necessarily the GP that you usually see. If you are unsure you can obtain the name of your accountable GP by asking reception next time you are in the surgery or the next time you call or email us.
All patients who have had tests carried out, please ensure that you contact the surgery 3 days after for your results.
On-line Patient Registration
Did you know patients can now register for on-line access for appointment bookings, repeat prescriptions and access to detailed coded records.
To apply for on-line access you will need to collect a form from reception and supply a form of ID.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
