Welcome to Cornbrook Medical Practice
Working together to provide warm, personalised care.
We welcome and treat all patients equally irrespective of age, race, religion, disability, gender, HIV status or sexual orientation.
If you're looking for up to date news and information about our practice, this is the place to come. You can also use this website for links to other health-related information.
Your feedback is important to us
As a practice, our aim is to work together as a team to provide warm, personalised care for all of our patients. We’re now also required to run a Friends and Family Test for our patients and provide monthly (anonymous) reports on the results of this.
Please help us by giving us your feedback. Are you happy with your experiences at the practice? Is there anything you think we’re doing really well? Is there anything we need to do better? How likely are you to recommend our practice to your friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?
You can provide us with your feedback by:
Filling out a short form that you can pick up from reception and popping it in the suggestions box in the waiting room.
Completing the Friends and Family Test which is included as an on-line survey at the bottom of this page.
How are we doing?

Friends and Family Test October
Please note that we have a practice meeting once a month. These meetings are held on a Tuesday afternoon between 12.30 and 3.30pm. Boundary and City Road are therefore closed during these hours but please do telephone the practice if you need to see a doctor urgently. Your call will be answered by the out of hours service.
Our next practice meeting is on the 6th December 2016!
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS
Electronic Prescribing is coming to Cornbrook!
From the 24th October 2016 we'll be able to send prescriptions electronically to a pharmacy of your choice. This will make things easier for you - for example, if you've requested a repeat prescription, you won't need to come in to the practice to collect it and then go to the pharmacy to get it dispensed - the prescription will go straight to the pharmacy when it's been signed by the doctor. Please speak to your usual pharmacy if you're interested in this service.
Welcome to two new doctors
We would like to welcome two new doctors to the practice - Dr Wassim Malas and Dr Emma Pimlott. Dr Malas has worked in Manchester for many years and has an interest in mental health. Dr Pimlott has worked in both Lancashire and London after training in Manchester. She has interests in drug & alcohol dependency and contraception.
We hope you will join us in giving them a warm welcome!
If you need help or advice between 6.30pm and 8.00am, please call 111. NHS111 handles all urgent but not life threatening health problems and queries between these hours. It's a Freephone number so you won't be charged for your call! NHS111 will then be able to direct you to a local service (e.g. out of hours doctor, pharmacy, walk in centre) that best meets your needs.
Doctors average pay
We're now required to publish details of our doctors' average pay.
The average pay for GPs working at Cornbrook Medical Practice in 2015/15 was £66,413 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 1 full time GP, 5 part time GPs and 0 locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.
With a change in registration rules, we're now able to accept patients from anywhere! Please check out the section on 'new patients' for more information........
Summary Care Records
A Summary Care Record is an electronic medical record which can only ever be accessed by healthcare staff at the time they are treating you. It contains information about your medication and any allergies or bad reactions you've had to medicines, so it can be really helpful if ever you need emergency treatment. GP Practices in Greater Manchester are now uploading Summary Care Records for their patients on to a secure NHS system. If you want to opt out of this, please speak to our reception staff.
Do you know what illnesses and injuries you can safely care for at home, when you need to see a GP and what 'red flags' will tell you that it's time to call 999 and head for A&E? Check out this site and find out: www.manchester.nhs.uk/choosewell
