The doctors and staff here at Ribbleton Medical Centre in Preston are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centered healthcare.
We are a GP training practice providing further training for junior doctors who are fully qualified and have had ample hospital experience that may wish to have a career in general practice. We also provide placements for medical students from the University of Manchester and Royal Preston Hospital. Both the practice and all doctors and medical students are thoroughly assessed by the North West Education Deanery before any placements.
We offer a wide variety of medical services including:
- Chronic disease monitoring
- Antenatal & postnatal care
All patients are allocated a named GP but you are welcome to see any GP within the practice. Please ask at reception if you would like to know who your named GP is, you can also look on your medical card.
Our care navigators (formally known as medical receptionists) are fully trained in taking details of your medical problem to enable them to assess and book your appointment with the most appropriate clinician, which may not necessarily be a GP. All our practice staff are bound by patient confidentiality.
