About Us

New Bank Health Centre was founded in 2010 as a new practice, under a government scheme to increase the number of doctors in certain areas. The practice was run by SSP Health Ltd until September 2017, and is currently run by The Robert Darbshire Practice Ltd (see below), since October 2017. 

Our mission statement

We aim to offer the best possible medical care and highest quality of service that is efficient, courteous and without discrimination.

We will treat every patient with equal respect, irrespective of age, gender, religion, race, sexuality or social status.

Part of the NHS family

Like other surgeries, we are part of the NHS family, providing NHS primary care services to NHS patients under contract to NHS England. We are in the area of Manchester Health and Care Commissioning which oversees health services in this area. We work with these organisations to ensure that the services we offer are of a high standard.

A teaching practice

We are an accredited practice for the teaching of medical students, educating the healthcare professionals of the future. To find out more about how this might affect you see: Teaching.

Listening to our patients

We very much value the views of our patients and each year we carry out a survey to find out what our patients think of our service. We also carry out occasional other surveys on specific issues. If you are asked to complete a form we hope you will take the time to share your honest opinions with us, as this will help us to learn about what we can do better. We also encourage our patients to submit comments and ideas for improvements.
