Welcome to Unsworth Group Practice


Online consult

Our Online Consult service gives you access to round the clock medical guidance – allowing you to check symptoms, receive medical advice and contact the surgery 24-7 through our online portal.

You will gain access to a wealth of medical information including articles and videos.

By filling in a simple health enquiry form you will be able to read information on how to treat your symptoms and what to do next.

The form will then come through to the surgery and we’ll review the information provided.

BLACKROD SURGERY PATIENTS

The Partners have taken the decision to temporarily move the Blackrod surgery to our Westhoughton building at Peter House, Captain Lees Road. 

This has been done to protect both our patients and colleagues and is under regular review.

You can still contact us using the Blackrod telephone number which is currently diverted to Westhoughton reception

Thank you for your understanding

Dear Patients,

Letters requesting people to shield have been sent either directly from NHS England or more recently, from the GP surgery on advice of NHS England.

These letters have been sent to patients with a variety of underlying health conditions which may make patients significantly more at risk of complications related to COVID-19.

Identifying patients is, unfortunately, not an exact science and there may be some inclusions or exclusions of patients from this list.  But please be assured that we are doing all we can to identify our most at risk patients to help them stay as safe as possible.

Shielding at this time is for your own personal protection.  It is your choice as to whether you follow this guidance.  Should you choose to shield, this letter can be used for evidence for your employer and support from the Government.

Please consult the Government website using this link for further detailed information relating to shielding.

Thank you for your understanding at this concerning time
