covid and 'flu vaccination programme autumn 2023
we are starting 'flu vaccinations on saturday 23rd september - you can either phone in and book or wait for a communication any of text email or letter whichever preference we have for you on record
we would like to offer covid vaccines as well but so far we have not received any allocation of covid vaccine so we are going to go ahead with 'flu vaccination and will call patients back for covid vaccines when they become available
if you only want a 'flu jab and not a covid jab or if you want a flu vaccine separate to the covid vaccine please accept your invitation when it comes
if you want both vaccines at the same time we will get in touch when we have both in stock - you don't need to do anything else just now
please keep an eye out for further on your preferred media or check on this site for more updates
have a good autumn and stay healthy!
National GP Patient Survey Results August 2022
High Lane Medical Centre top in England!
I’d like to express my deep gratitude on behalf of the practice to all our patients especially those of you who gave us such magnificent and unreserved support in the recent GP Survey of Patients views of their General Practice published in August 2022
High Lane Medical Centre came an incredibly first out of some 6400+ practices over the whole of England!
We came top 4 years ago within Greater Manchester and thought that that couldn’t be repeated so it was an absolute shock to see that we not only came best in the Northwest but nationally as well
You supported us by the answers you gave but also voted in numbers well beyond the national average by a considerable way
Thank you indeed – we now have set the bar high and will continue to strive to maintain our level of service and improve systems as they come and evolve where we can
I’d also like to thank all our staff who day by day continue to work tirelessly in a friendly professional manner which supports the practice magnificently No dragon managers or receptionists here thank goodness!
We hope and expect that other practices will approach us and seek to emulate what it is that we do to achieve success and in essence that means removing barriers and remembering what we are here for which is not to hide behind waiting lists and rules but to serve our patients in ways that makes their life easier
