About Bowland Medical Practice
There has been a doctor’s surgery at Bowland Road since 1963. Originally it was the ground floor of a doctor’s house. The surgery has been extended several times to the size it is today.
Bowland Road has been a successful training practice since 1974. Bowland trains fully qualified doctors to become GPs but also trains medical students, nursing students and trainee hospital doctors who become hospital consultants in the future. All our GP partners are fully involved in the training process.
Our practice also prides itself on being one of the first practices in Manchester to have practice nurses, having always had at least one practice nurse since the surgery opened in 1963. We also have access to a pharmacist, a dietician, a podiatrist, a physiotherapist and a mental health practitioner within the practice.
The present seven-doctor partnership aims to provide up-to-date and efficient medical care whilst retaining the friendly and accessible nature of the traditional family doctor.
The practice operates a fair and unbiased acceptance procedure for patients, and endeavours to provide equal access to all patients.
