Welcome to Accrington Victoria Health Access Centre
This is a new and innovative GP service. The service opened on 1st November 2009 and provides a walk in service (drop in) to non registered patients for minor illnesses and a full primary care service to those patients who wish to register with us.
The centre is fully accessible to disabled people. The entrance, waiting area, consulting rooms and toilets are all suitable for wheelchair access. There is car parking available on site free of charge and disabled bays are located by the entrances. Chaperones are available upon request and translating services can be provided.
The practice is staffed by a highly qualified and skilled team of GP's and nurses. Our nurse practitioners are highly trained and can prescribe medication to deal with minor illnesses such as coughs, colds and flu, chest infections, asthma attacks, diabetes, tonsillitis, earache, sore throats, eye infections, skin disorders and childhood illnesses. They are also able to offer advice on healthy lifestyle, well woman/man issues, health education, family planning, and advice on medication. Our Practice Nurse is available for appointments for registered patients for blood tests, childhood immunisations, travel health, healthy lifestyle, women's health, chronic conditon advice and checks.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
