Pennygate Medical Centre is situated 3 miles to the East of Wigan. There are easy transport links to the surgery, which is situated adjacent to Hindley Railway Station, with direct links to Manchester, Wigan and Southport. We are situated very close to junction 6 of the M61 motorway and in reasonable distance of the M6 motorway.

 

Our practice is located in a large modern building, which also houses a pharmacy and a gym. There is easy access to the building and a large car park serves the practice. There are nine GP partners, four male and five female and one female salaried GP. There is one advanced nurse practitioner, five practice nurses and one health care assistant. There is a full-time practice manager, an assistant practice manager and a team of administrative and reception staff.

 

There are approximately 16,800 patients on the practice list. We offer experience in a full complement of services including chronic disease management, minor surgery and a complete range of contraceptive services. We have close contact with other members of our wider healthcare team including district nurses, midwives, health trainers, community link workers, psychology and mental health support, as well as the fitness team supporting patient activity in our gym. We have an active patient participation group supporting regular community activities focussed on improving health, including a weekly walking group.

 

As a practice, we are committed to and enjoy supporting education. All of our GP ST3s have been successful in attaining their MRCGP. We are also involved in Foundation Training having three FY1 and two FY2 doctors, as well as engaging in Medical Student teaching.
