The Thornton Practice is a long established GP training practice. Our clinical team consists of eight GPs, one ANP, four practice nurses, two HCAs and one Health Advisor. We also receive clinical assistance and support from a pharmacist, district nursing team, health visiting team, midwifery team and treatment room team. We have been a training practice for approximately 30 years, and nearly all the GP partners who form our team were originally partially trained here.
Our practice has a long history of treating the families of Thornton and surrounding areas, and we maintain our philosophy of providing high quality, patient-centred care. At all times we attempt to provide an accessible, approachable and friendly service to all our patients.
The practice is a member of NHS Fylde and Wyre Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the organisation responsible for buying high quality, safe and effective health services to meet the needs of local people. To find out more, visit: www.fyldeandwyreccg.nhs.uk
