Due to the current issues of Coronavirus we are currently not offering face to face appointments unless asked directly by a Doctor / Clinician. This is to limit the spread of the virus and to keep GP's, clinicians, staff and patients safe. We will also not be offering any pre-bookable appointments or online bookings. Patients can still call at 8am as usual and will be booked in for a telephone consultation instead. 

Thank you in advance for your co-operation during this time. Please remember to stay safe, wash hands regularly and also look after those who may be self isolating / elderly whilst not putting yourself at risk. 

From Monday 16th November the prescription line will close at 1pm until further notice due to staffing issues across both sites. Patients will be able to call the prescription line on 01772 237615 Monday - Friday between the hours of 9am-1pm to order their prescriptions. Thank you in advance for your continued support and co-operation during this time.

Over the last 12 months we have been raising money for the QK70 fund in memory of Dr Khan. In the last year we have raised a massive £800 which has been split between The Foxton Centre and the Preston Domestic Violence Service. We also collected and donated to The Salvation Army in December ready for their Christmas parcels. On behalf of Issa Medical Centre and Dr Khan's family we would like to thank you for all your support and contributions over the year and we are looking forward to raising money again in the near future!!

The award was presented by Rotarian and our Senior Practice Manager Sharon Riley.
