Welcome to Whittaker Lane Medical Centre
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
Goodbye Dr Bromley!
Dr Bromley is retiring as a partner from the surgery. Having been at Whittaker Lane since 1997 she has seen many changes within the NHS and is popular and conscientious GP. Patients and staff are sad to see her go; she intends to still work as a doctor and will be coming into the surgery when needed to help cover during holiday periods.
Dr Ruby Malik will be replacing Dr Bromley, coming to work with us 3 days a week. Patients may remember Dr Malik from her time here as a registrar doctor. Since then she has worked as a salaried GP in Burnley and has developed her interests in Family Planning, women’s health and training. We are delighted she has agreed to join our team.
Online services app
We have been asked to pilot a new App which can be used from a smart phone or tablet to access the Vision Online Services (VOS). Our service provider (INPS) is keen for any feedback on the app before it is rolled out nationally. Patients who are already registered with our online services can download the app for free by visiting their app store and searching for INPS then looking for the “patient services app”.
Once you have downloaded the app, sign in using your usual VOS account details with our practice code (P83605), your username and password.
You can use the app to order your medication when it is due or make an appointment if you require and then feedback to the practice (ask for Jen) any positive or negative comments so we can pass it on to our service provider. We anticipate the pilot will run over the summer and then depending on its success will be rolled out to other practices.
