Shakespeare Surgery is situated approximately 1 mile south of Wigan town centre. There are easy transport links to the surgery via bus or Wigan Central or Wigan Northwestern train stations, with direct links to Manchester and the West Coast line to explore further afield. We are situated less than a mile to junction 25 of the M6 motorway and have good road links into Manchester, Lancashire, Cheshire and Liverpool.
Our practice is located in a large modern building with 4 other practices, a pharmacy, a full community treatment suite and the local education centre. There is easy access to the building and a large car park. There are three part time GP partners, including 2 male and 1 female partner. We also have one part time female salaried GP and typically offer two GP STR tracks at any one time. We have one practice nurse and one health care assistant. There is a practice manager and a team of reception staff.
The practice looks after just over 3000 patients on the practice list. We also work as a member of the SWAN cluster with other local practices to collectively deliver our same day access via our local hub arrangement that a STR can work within, giving an experience of a “new model of care” as described in the GP 5 year Forward view.
The practice team offer the usual range of services including chronic disease management, minor surgery and a complete range of contraceptive services including coils and implants. 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 a practice, we are committed to and enjoy supporting education with all three partners being accredited Trainers. Our GP ST3s have a role in supporting our ST2s, as well as engaging in Medical Student teaching.
We look forward to welcoming you to our team.
