Welcome to Standish Medical Practice
Standish Medical Practice is based four miles outside of Wigan, Lancashire. It has a long-standing history as the only GP surgery within the village and moved to its end-terrace location on Church Street in 1903. At that time it was a purpose-built doctor`s surgery and living quarters, and remained so until the middle of the century.
Both the village and practice have extended over the years and it now covers a population of almost 12,000 patients. We moved to our new state of the art building in February 2012.
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.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
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.
As all those local to Standish are aware parking in the centre can be very difficult. We regret that at our new building we are unable to offer parking for patients. There are disabled spaces only and the use of these will be monitored to ensure they are being used appropriately. All those parking in these spaces should give their name and registration number to our reception staff on arrival and sign out of the building on leaving.
