FAQs

Why is the Prestbury Practice moving to Bushbury?

The Prestbury Medical Pracitce have been working to secure new fit-for-purpose medical facilities for the last 5 years. The CCG identified the Prestwood Road West Surgery as a 'red risk' which means that the Practice is no longer fit for purpose. Specialist advisors were therefore instructed in March 2020 to locate a new site and deliver new, purpose-built premises. After looking at 13 sites, the Bushbury site was identified as the most deliverable and appropriate for existing patients. Please click here to see the proposed location.

How will I get to the New Practice?

Existing patients who currently walk to the Bushbury Practice will be able to continue to do so. Patients will also be able to travel to the site via public transport as there are currently 9 bus stops within 350 metres of the proposed site as shown below on the map.
The bus stops are serviced by three buses, numbers 32, 33 and 65. 

At the new Practice there will also be ample parking to facilitate those that currently drive to the Practice of their choice. Bike storage will be available outside and there will also be electric vehicle charging points.

How will this proposed relocation affect my care?

There will be no change to the quality of care you receive as there will be no change to services delivered by staff at the Prestbury Practice.

No you will not be removed from the patient list as part of the re-location. No, the patient boundary is not moving.

Will I need to re-register with my GP?

What will the opening hours be?

Will I be able to see the same Drs and Nurses?
