Open Consultations and Projects

We nearly always have a consultation or engagement project that we are asking for feedback on.  Click on the links below for more information on how to get involved.

Date: Now – mid March 2022


Higher Ince and Lower Ince surgeries are proposing to merge practices and we will be supporting them to engage with patients and stakeholders about the proposal.

Due to Coronavirus, Higher Ince surgery has been closed to patients since March 2020, as it is being used as a clinic for people with the virus. Patients have used Lower Ince surgery or other surgeries which we manage, and this has been working well. We want to ensure that our patients continue to receive high-quality healthcare services and this merger will mean we will have a larger pool of GPs and other clinicians to be available to help patients. It will also allow other services to be run more efficiently and effectively for all patients.

Who should get involved:

We would really like to hear from patients and stakeholders of Higher Ince and Lower Ince surgery.  We value your opinion and would like to know what you think about the proposed merger.

How to get involved:

You can find out more here about the proposed merger and the potential benefits to patients. Once you have spent a few minutes reviewing the information please give us your feedback by completing the online survey here.  Paper copies are also available from Lower Ince surgery reception.

If you would like to speak to someone about the proposed merger, please telephone Lower Ince surgery on 01942 481140.

Next Steps:

Due to Coronavirus, we cannot talk to patients about this face-to-face, but we will be holding a virtual drop-in session online when people can ask questions about the proposed merger and learn more about it.

The session will be held via video call on Monday 14th February 2022, 10.00am-12.00pm.

If you have any questions or queries about this drop-in session, please email

We are also talking about this with the Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) for Higher Ince surgery and Lower Ince surgery. If you would like to talk to a PPG representative about the proposed merger, please contact 01942 481140.

Date: Now – end of 2021


We are delighted to be working with Boothstown Medical Centre, Flexdane and Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Teaching Foundation Trust on the development of a new health and wellbeing centre on Parr Bridge Retail Park, Mosley Common Road, Tyldesley.

Once open, Boothstown Medical Centre and some community services will relocate into this new building. Building work is expected to start early 2022 with completion early 2023.

The new building is 960 meters way from Boothstown Medical Centre and has more parking and facilities than they currently do. The relocation of some community health services will be fantastic for the local area.

Who should get involved:

We would really like to hear from any patients of Boothstown Medical Centre or community services, or any local residents and staff from that area.

We appreciate this is a change and some of patients may need to travel a little bit further to access the practice for example when they relocate.

A dedicated website has been set up which has some more information about the building, including the floorplan and a 3D virtual tour of the site. View this here.

How to get involved:

Once you have spent a few minutes reviewing the information please do give us your feedback. You can click here to complete the online survey or pop in to Boothstown Medical Centre if you would prefer a paper copy. We would like initial feedback by 12th November 2021.

Next steps:

We are pleased to announce that planning permission has been granted for this development to progress. Your feedback will help us in our next steps and we are particularly keen to hear from you if there is anything we can do to support you to access services when the new building opens.

Different formats:
