Welcome to Thursby Surgery
Welcome to our surgery website. We hope to use this site as a way of presenting all our patients with an up to date resource for all information relating to our practice. We will keep it current with any news, developments and details that are relevant to the practice & our patients.
As well as a source of information about our Practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you use the website as a useful resource with links to other reliable websites for health related information. If there is topical health information we will also add this to the website.
The Surgery will be closed over the Easter Weekend
Friday 18th April to Monday 21st April inclusive.
In the event of needing medical advice or treatment over this period please ring 111.
You should still dial 999 in a life threatening emergency.
Please also ensure you have ordered in advance any repeat prescriptions that you may require over this period.
Dr Shahbaz Afzal
Dr Afzal is an FY2 Doctor (Foundation Year 2). He is fully qualified and has been working in the local hospitals. He is now with Thursby Surgery until August 2014 gaining further experience in General Practice. He will be holding his own surgeries and appointments will be available to book with Dr Afzal. Unfortunately these will not be available to book on-line or via our telephone booking service but can be booked with a receptionist.
PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUP
This is your group which all patients are invited to join. Please click on the logo on the right side of this page for further information. If you would like to attend a meeting but haven't been to one before please ring and let us know you are coming so we can introduce you to everyone. If you do not wish to attend in person there is an opportunity to join our 'virtual' group whereby we would contact you via e-mail for your views on various aspects of the surgery and our services. We encourage all patients to take an active part in forming our health services.
PATIENT PARTNER - This is our automated telephone service and enables you to book, check or cancel an appointment without speaking to a receptionist - very useful when the surgery is closed. All we need is your correct telephone number on our computer system. During surgery hours if you want to speak to a receptionist just 'hold' and you will be put through to reception.
Online Appointments & Prescriptions -
You can order your repeat prescriptions and book your appointments with a Doctor online, via this website by clicking on either of the two purple coloured links above. To use this service you must first register your interest in person. Please come to reception with some form of ID and they will supply you with the necessary forms and then you can begin using our online services.
Your prescription should be available after two working days (please allow for weekends and bank holidays). Requests ordered after 5.30 pm cannot be processed until the following day.
Please do not forget we are closed on Bank Holidays.
If you are ordering your repeat medication early for some reason, please can you indicate this by typing a suitable comment in the 'comment' box. Thank you.
