Welcome To The Practice

Move Update - September 2019

As you may know, the CCG’s planning application to enable us to move to the vacant ward at Walton Community Hospital was refused by local councillors at the beginning of the year.

The CCG has appealed this decision and the case is now with the Planning Inspectorate.

You may have already received a letter from the council (if you submitted a response to the original application, or if you live in close geographical proximity to Walton Community Hospital) stating that this has gone to appeal and how to submit a representation (comment) if you wish to do so.

Could we please ask you to support us again in our endeavour to move to more suitable premises and enable us to open our lists?

We would be able to provide our own ‘Fort House service’  in a more appropriate environment for all our patients

To make a representation (comment) please use the following link

Under ‘search for a case’ please enter the following 7 digit number – 3232439

Many thanks

Patient Access Proxy

This development is currently being discussed by practices with the CCG and other Information Governance bodies.

We currently do not have complete information as to how this process should work, and as such, we are currently not able to grant this proxy access.

As soon as this situation changes, we will advertise this on our website.

 


The Fort House Surgery website provides a range of health information and resources, along with practical information on visiting the surgery. We hope you find the website useful and informative.

We are a GMS (General Medical Services) practice looking after over 12,000 patients, and are contracted to provide medical care including maternity service, minor surgical procedures, immunisations, vaccinations, contraceptive services and monitoring of a number of chronic diseases.

It is our aim to provide high quality family medicine to all our patients.

Patients are registered with an allocated Doctor, please ask at reception who you are registered with. However you are entitled to see any doctor of your choice within the practice.

Out Of Hours

Our out of hours telephone number has changed to 111.
