Welcome to Lockstown Practice
Lockstown is an established medical practice which is known to offer excellent medical care in the Willenhall area. Since September 2014 we started working in partnership with Fisher Street Surgery and in May 2015, both practices become merged. This will enable patients to access our services at either premises.
In 2011 we were accredited as a training practice. You may be offered an appointment with the GP Registrar, who is a fully qualified doctor undertaking additional training in order to specialise in General Practice.
WE HAVE AN APPOINTMENT REMINDER, TEXTING SERVICE, PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK WITH RECEPTION THAT WE HAVE AN UPDATED MOBILE NUMBER
|Gomer Street||Fisher Street|
Both premises have wheelchair access to both floors and disabled toilet facilities on the ground floor. If you need assitance, our reception staff will be happy to assist. Parking facilities are available for all patients at the front of the building and disabled parking spaces are for blue badge holders only. We have a clamping service in operation to protect our disabled spaces. CCTV covers all areas 24/7 .

Hundreds of hours wasted as missed GP slots in this Practice alone costs NHS thousands
Patients in this Practice failed to attend 1583 face-to-face consultations with doctors and nurses in this Practice alone in the last 12 months. (Data taken from our appointments system)
Across England, the average cost of an appointment is £30, meaning no-shows in Lockstown Practice cost the NHS an estimated £47,490.00 over the year
This equates to the equivalent annual salary of 1 full time Practice Nurse and 1 full time HCA
With appointments usually lasting around 10 minutes, unattended appointments meant GP’s and other practice staff wasted 263 hours of consulting time.
Cancelled appointments are no included in these figures, as the surgery can offer those slots to other patients
“Many patients complain they are waiting far too long for a GP appointment,
and we can all do our bit to help”
The British Medical Association (BMA) said it is vital that appointments are not wasted at a time of intense pressure in the NHS
SO PLEASE REMEMBER TO CANCEL YOUR APPOINTMENTS
