To book a GP appointment with Padgate Medical Centre and Woolston Surgery

Our appointments can be requested via online (PATCHs) if you are unable to complete an online request our Practice Advisers will be happy to assist.

PATCHs online requests are triaged on the morning which they are received until capacity is reached.  Once PATCHS has reached the maximum capacity for the day, it will automatically be switched off until 08.00am next working day.

Once all appointments have been triaged you will be contact via text/phone to advise when your appointment has been booked.

Our Reception Team as Care Navigators

You will notice our reception team/care navigators ask for a brief outline of your problem when you ring to book an appointment over the telephone if you are unable to submit a PATCH’s request or in person at our reception desk.

Care Navigation means they have trained to help patients by identifying the most appropriate service or member of staff for your particular health problem or need.

They will never offer clinical advice.  It is about offering you the choice to see the most appropriate professional in the practice team or elsewhere to help you get the best care for your problem.  It will often be quicker and means you may not need to see a GP at all.

Such professional or services they sign post you to may be a community pharmacist, social services, Warrington Health & Wellbeing Service or other services locally.  Here are a list of the some the services they may suggest:             

By working this way, it helps to free up time for our GP’s to care for patients with complex or serious health conditions that can only be managed by a GP.  More importantly though, it means people are seen first by the clinician best able to manage their clinical problem.

The choice is always yours though and you will never be refused a GP appointment but we hope the next time you contact the surgery and speak to our reception team/care navigator you will see the value of seeing another health professional if they are able to help.  If you would like someone to explain this to you in person, a member of our practice team would be happy to help.

Medication enquiries

If you have a enquiry with regards to medications please contact the surgery after 2.00pm

Padgate Medical Centre will be delivering an Enhanced Access Service from Monday 26th of February }.

East Warrington Primary Care Network (EWPCN) consists of Birchwood Medical Centre, Fearnhead Cross Medical Centre, and Padgate Medical Centre. We will deliver a shared enhanced access service for patients who are registered with one of our practices. The service is available Monday – Thursday at one of our Practices, and Friday – Sunday the service is available from Orford Jubilee Hub. More details are given below in our frequently asked questions.

Is this a change to current services?

Yes, this is a slight change in service delivery. 

Previously the service was delivered across Warrington town in collaboration with three other Primary Care Networks.  Therefore, appointments were offered across the town at several locations, and Quay Healthcare Ltd, were responsible for delivering the whole service.

Practices in the East of Warrington will now run their own service Monday- Thursday (which gives patients more convenient, local ‘Access’ to their surgeries.

Quay Healthcare will continue to run the service on behalf of practices, Friday-Sunday.

Why change?

Our GPs, and practice staff wish to improve ‘Access’ for patients and have recently been reviewing current arrangements, seeking opportunities to make improvements and increase patient satisfaction. We believe that bringing the service in-house and offering more appointments within the East Warrington community, will benefit patients and increase uptake. 

Where is the service located? 

The service is located at the following practices:

Monday – Birchwood Medical Centre

Tuesday – Fearnhead Cross Medical Centre

Wednesday – Padgate Medical Centre

Thursday – Fearnhead Cross Medical Centre

Friday – Sunday – Orford Jubilee Hub

Patients may be offered appointments, at one of the above locations. 

How do I contact the service?

Contact your GP Practice as you would usually (either by telephone, or via an online consultation, and request an appointment with the ‘enhanced access service’).

Enhanced Access Friday – Sunday (location Orford Jubilee)

This practice is delighted to be signed up to the Green Impact for Health Toolkit and is actively taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint.

The climate emergency is also a health emergency, and health care in the UK contributes 5.4% of the UK’s carbon emissions. We need to enhance the health of our current population without compromising the health of future generations, and this means operating within the sustainable boundaries of the planet. Fortunately most of the solutions for the planet also make our health better – for example eating a mainly plant-based diet, engaging in active travel and exercise in nature, avoiding smoking, reducing pollution etc all enhance our health and reduce our need for medications
