The Over-Wyre Medical Centre in Wilkinson Way, Preesall, has been rated ‘outstanding’ by the health service watchdog.

The Care Quality Commission said the practice was ‘impressive’ and was ‘delivering high quality care across all the areas we look at on inspection’.

Alison Holbourn, the deputy chief inspector of general practice, said: “Inspectors saw staff that treated patients with kindness, dignity and respect.

“In addition to this, they also listened to their patients, and made changes at the practice based on this feedback.

“This made sure that services were reflective of the needs of the people using them. The practice is extremely well-led, and we saw evidence that innovation and improvement was a priority not just among management, but all staff.”
