Welcome to Greenbank Medical Practice
The Greenbank Medical practice is the result of The Radcliffe Medical practice, The Glodwick Medical practice and Addy practice merging together. View our profile here
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
We would like to inform you that Dr. Watt has left the practice for pastures new.
Dr. Watt has been a partner at the practice for almost 20 years. I am sure his hard work, determination and dedication will be greatly missed by both staff and patients alike.
Dr. Watt was a very popular GP and Colleague and I am sure you would all like to join us in thanking him for all his hard work and dedication to the practice and its patients over the years.
Important information re General Practice Data for Planning and Research
The government has decided it will collect, process, analyse and disseminate your GP data for Planning and Research Direction 2021. From July 1st 2021, the patient data will be extracted from GP systems on a daily basis; data will be encrypted and pseudonymised. As this is a statutory obligation, practices are legally obliged to share this data. Click here to learn more about what the government says.
You do not need to do anything if you are happy for your data to be shared in this manner.
If you as a patient want to opt out of your data being shared, apart from information used for your direct care, you have the option of registering a Type 1 Opt-out or a National Opt-out or both.
If you wish to register your opt out choice, please use the following link:
Make your choice about sharing data from your health records - NHS (www.nhs.uk)
If you do not have access to a computer / printer then you can request for the form to be sent to you by phoning 0300 303 5678 between Friday 9am to 5pm (excluding bank holidays). You must send this letter by 23rd June 2021 to ensure no data is uploaded from your records.
Please do NOT phone the surgery if you have further questions as we wish to keep the phonelines open for patients needing direct care. Further information including Frequently asked questions are available below.
In line with recent government recommendations, from Monday 18th May 2020 we expect all patients entering our building to wear a face covering. It should be cotton ideally.
This link explains the science behind our decision:
These coverings can be made from things you've already got at home, like an old T-shirt, or even a sports sock with just a few well-made snips with scissors and a little bit of sewing. But if you're not so confident in your creative abilities, there are plenty of companies online that can be found with a quick Google search.
Children under 2 are not expected to wear a face covering.
Younger children (primary) who cannot manage a mask are also not expected to wear one
Our entire practice team will be doing the same.
Face coverings protect *other people* from droplets that you may release into the air, they do not protect you unless everyone wears them.
In England, you must by law wear a face covering in the following settings:
Thank you for your continued support and understanding
