Our Clinical Teams
We are a large practice, covering several sites and a vast geographical area, but we strive to provide a localised approach to patient care through our four clinical teams.
Clinical teams work in a particular geographical area, based within specific practice sites to ensure strong practice-patient relationships, good continuity of care and delivery of high quality services for patients.
All clinical teams are made up of a range of healthcare professionals to get you the care that you need. This means that your care will fall into one particular clinical team, and you will be cared for by GPs and other specialist professionals that work within that group. Your named GP will also be in this group.
If you have an urgent medical need (conditions that require medical attention within 72 hours), you may be asked to attend an appointment with a clinician outside of your usual clinical team. For planned care (less clinically urgent conditions / ongoing problems that can safely wait more than 72 working hours for medical attention and may benefit from continuity of care), you will be added to your named GP’s waiting list and your appointment will take place within your usual clinical team.
We acknowledge that patients have the right to express a preference for using a particular doctor within Lancaster Medical Practice; we will endeavour to find a solution where possible.
