Westgate News

Welcome to our website.

Choose and Book

Choose and Book is an electronic referral service which gives people a choice of place, date and time for their first outpatient appointment in a hospital or clinic. When you and your GP agree you need to see a specialist you will be able to choose from a list of hospitals and clinics.

You will be given an appointment reference number, a password and the link to the secure Choose and Book website. You will also be able to book your appointment by telephone.

Shingles Vaccination

This is available for patients aged 70, 71, 72, 78 or 79, please see the vaccinations tab for further information.

Carer's Health Check

Have you had your Carer's Health Check? If not contact Reception and ask for an appointment.

Medical Record Summary

Patients now have access to a summary of their medical record relating to medications, allergies and adverse reactions and vaccinations. Patients will need to have registered for on-line services in order to access their record.

Named GP for all Patients

All patients at the Westgate Practice have a ‘Named GP’ who oversees their care. We also call your ‘Named GP’ your ‘Usual GP’. You can however, continue to book appointments with any GP of your choice. If you are not sure who your ‘Named GP’ is, ask the receptionist at your next visit.

At The Westgate Practice in Lichfield our  doctors and nurses take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.

Please note, to access our online appointment and prescription services, patients will need to register for this service. Please call into our surgery at your convenience, bringing one form of identification with you - thank you.

At Westgate we offer a text reminder service to all our patients who inform us of their mobile number. This service is used to remind patients of appointments booked and for general clinic dates. Any risk of the messages being intercepted is addressed by minimising the information sent. If you use the online services to update your contact details and do not want to be included in the text reminder service please contact the practice.
