Cheshire and Wirral Partnership Awarded Contract for Willaston Surgery

22 November 2017

Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP) is delighted to announce that it has been awarded the contract to provide primary care services at Willaston Surgery, from December 2017. 

Willaston Surgery, a GP Practice near Neston in Cheshire, becomes the second GP practice to be managed by the Trust, joining Westminster Surgery in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire. CWP’s time providing services at Westminster Surgery has been a successful one, so far, as in June 2017, the Surgery was rated as “Good” overall by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) with how responsive services were to their patients’ needs being highlighted as a particular area of good practice. 

At Willaston Surgery, there are four registered GPs, and the Practice also provides specialist treatment for asthma, diabetes, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and heart disease. It has over 4000 registered patients and an existing rating of ‘Good’ from the CQC. 

The Trust is looking forward to working with staff at the Practice, embedding our Trust values and Person-Centred Framework, to improve the already-caring and responsive services at Willaston. This way, together, we can provide the best possible care to the people of Willaston.    

Alison Swanton, CWP general manager for West Cheshire, said: “We are really excited to welcome the staff and patients at Willaston Surgery to CWP and we look forward to working together in the future. 

“Since Westminster came on board in 2015, we have seen some real improvements which were recently noted by the CQC, including how services are planned to take into account the needs of different patient groups and our vision to provide person-centred care for everybody.”
