Welcome to Highfield Surgery

Highfield Surgery is a long established teaching practice. Our purpose is to provide people registered with the practice personal health care of high quality and to seek continuous improvement on the health status of the practice population. We aim to achieve this by developing and maintaining a happy sound practice which is responsive to people’s needs and which reflects whenever possible the latest advances in Primary Health Care.

We are a NHS general practice providing services to patients in south Blackpool and part of St Annes. The practice offers a comprehensive range of services within purpose-built premises in South Shore Primary Care Centre. Highfield Surgery occupies most of the top floor of the health centre and part of the first (middle) floor. Two lifts mean there is easy access to both floors. Facilities for the disabled and parents with children are available throughout the building.

The building is light and airy thanks to the central atrium. Environmental features include natural ventilation with 15% renewable energy sources provided by solar thermal photovoltaic panels, and even the water used for flushing the toilets is from rainwater harvested from the roof. The electricity produced by the solar PV panels is utilised for lighting and small amounts of power.

Evening and weekend appointments

Both face-to-face and virtual evening and weekend appointments are available with GPs, practice nurses and other healthcare professionals for routine pre-booked services.

The Fylde Coast NHS is committed to improving access to primary care services. This includes making appointments available at times that are convenient to patients.

If you:

  • find it difficult to attend an appointment during the working day;
  • are a busy parent with small children;
  • or rely on working carers to take you to appointments;

then this service is here to support you.

About the service

The Fylde Coast NHS has arranged for additional appointments to be provided outside of normal GP practice hours by the Fylde Coast Integrated Urgent Care Service.

The service offers pre-bookable and same-day routine primary care appointments with a range of clinicians including GPs, nurses and health care assistants. Appointments are available for both face-to-face and virtual (telephone or video) consultations.

Please be aware that this is not a walk-in service – you must have an appointment.

The service employs local clinicians from the Fylde Coast, where possible.
