Werneth Medical Practice’s mission is to provide the highest standard of patient care though a framework we call the 4 H’s:
In return, we will demand that patients treat us with kindness, respect and patience and allow us to do our job free of abuse and undue pressure.
Our team includes Two GPs, One Practice Nurse, one Phlebotomist as well as our Practice Manager and Reception staff. We also now have allied staff via our Primary care network such as Social prescribers, Pharmacists and First contact physios. Dr Bilal Butt is the CQC registered manager and we run our services at the Werneth Primary Care Centre on Featherstall Road South.
We offer a full General Practice service and run specialist clinics for children, those with chronic diseases such as Diabetes and Asthma and women’s health. We aim to involve you in the decisions made about your health and act as advocates for your best interests.
At Werneth Medical Practice, we aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence. We feel it is important you know who you are speaking to, so our practice staff identify themselves on the telephone.
This website is for both existing patients and those considering registering with us. It tells you about our services, how to access them and some general information about how our practice operates.
