New Appointment Booking System

From Monday 08 March 2021 we will be using a new appointment booking system. We will be offering same day appointments with clinicians that you will be able to book from 09.00 am everyday. Please call at 09.00am to book a same day appointment, or alternatively to pre-book an appointment please download SystmOnline app. We encourage you to use eConsult from the Practice website which will not require you to call reception.

You will still be able to pre-book appointments for the Practice Nurse and Healthcare Assistant.

 

Face covering exemptions

Although we strongly recommend that all our patients and the general public wear a face covering/mask in line with the government advice, we understand that some people will struggle to use them.

Unfortunately we DO NOT provide exemption letters however the links below may be of some use.

Patient Participation Group (PPG)

The Crompton Health Centre would like to invite its patients to join their Patient Participation Group.

Our Patient Participation Group is a small group of patients and GP practice staff who meet to discuss ways to contribute to the shaping of the health services provided in the community, share information and gain the patient perspective on how we provide our services. This is particularly important, with the new changes being made to the NHS, in helping us deliver services by placing the patient voice at the centre.

We feel that you have the knowledge, passion and capability to represent our patient population, and hope that you will consider being a member of the group.

We would greatly appreciate your support.

If you are interested in joining our PPG, please contact the Reception Team on 020 77237789 and leave your contact details.
