IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ALL PATIENTS
Following the decision of the partners at Elizabeth Street Surgery to give up their contract to run the surgery, a decision has been taken to close the practice. This means that during the coming weeks you will need to choose a new GP practice at which to register you/your family. There are a number of practices locally which you will be able to choose from.
What should you do now?
Please do not worry. Our priority is to make sure that you have continued access to high quality GP services. All the practices in Blackpool are taking new patients and you will be able to choose one that is most convenient for you.
You will need to register with a new GP. We advise that you choose a new practice ASAP but by no later than Thursday 30 September 2021 to give time for your medical records to be transferred over.
The following practices are the closest to Elizabeth Street Surgery:
Adelaide Street Family Practice – located on Adelaide Street – 0.5 miles away.
Please note, Adelaide Street Surgery will be temporarily located at the Elizabeth Street premises from later this year. This is due to the current Adelaide Street building being demolished to make way for a new health centre being built on the site.
South King Street Medical Centre – located on South King Street – 0.5 miles away.
St Paul’s Medical Centre – located on Dickson Road, at the back of the Hilton Hotel on the promenade – 1.1 miles away.

Our patients are the focus of our attention. To the best of our ability, we are here to provide you with a high standard of patient care and services.

NHS Veterans Mental Health Leaflet
The Accessible Information Standard aims to ensure that patients (or their carers) who have a disability or sensory loss receive information they can access and understand, for example in large print, braille or via email, and professional communication support if they need it, for example from a British Sign Language interpreter.
This applies to patients and their carers who have information and / or communication needs relating to a disability, impairment or sensory loss. It also applies to parents and carers of patients / service users who have such information and / or communication needs, where appropriate.
Individuals most likely to be affected by the Standard include people who are blind or deaf, who have some hearing and / or visual loss, people who are deaf blind and people with a learning disability. However, this list is not exhaustive.
Should you have any requirements or know of a patient who needs support please let the Practice know and we will help provide support.
Further information can be obtained on the NHS website www.england.nhs.uk/accessibleinfo.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Practice if you have any questions.
