My family and I are very sad to be leaving due to change of address. You looked after me extremely well. Many thanks to you all members of staff. Special thanks to Dr Cross, Lorraine and Dr Ahsan. God bless you.

Not been at this surgery for long, but the doctors we have seen have been great and the reception staff are always polite and helpful.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

ScanAssure Medical Ultrasound

315 Chorley New Rd, Bolton BL1 5BP, UK – 01204 322509

Amazing service and staff! I came for a reassurance scan as it was quite a long wait until my NHS scan. After suffering an early miscarriage early in the year I was extremely anxious. The staff were amazing. The lady on the phone booked me an appointment the very same day. The lady who did my scan was patient and understanding and took time to reassure me everything was alright. She gave me a report to show my midwife and I even got 2 photographs included. I will be booking again soon to see little one again! Thankyou so much

I had my baby Scan here last we week and it was just perfect. The sonographer was lovely and spent ages with me explaining the scan and reassuring me about baby. I felt confident the minute I spoke with the booking team who seemed really to care about what I wanted. The place is also lovely and relaxing and they shown me their brand new scanning suite which opens soon and it looks really nice, I have booked my 4D scan with them for October. The prices were the best I could find (after much looking around) and offered great value for money. What I really loved though was the way that they checked everything they could on baby and was really meticulous. I cannot recommend these guys more.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Bolton

Viva La Salsa

52 Bridge St, Bolton BL1 2EG, UK – 01204 227862

We ate here on a Friday night and loved it so much we took the whole family on Sunday. The staff were really friendly. The owner was lovely and the food is amazing. Can't recommend highly enough. Great for children too as there is lots of choice. Big thumbs up from the whole family

Booked on the basis of being a very short walk from our hotel, I think we definitely lucked out here! The restaurant was very busy when we arrived, despite being located in a fairly quiet part of the town, suggesting customers were making a specific journey to come here. We were seated quickly and although there was a little wait for the first round of drinks, it was by no means excessive and perfectly acceptable for a restaurant that was this busy. The tapas menu is extensive, with some classic Spanish dishes and some more unusual interpretations. However, the way in which the menu is structured is excellent and a brilliant concept. I often find that English folk tend to treat tapas the same as we would any other cuisine and miss the whole point of sharing and enjoying a meal over an extended period of them. Viva La Salsa's menu is all you can eat - the excellent waiting staff insist that you order several dishes at a time and keep coming back to take your order. Between four of us, we must have had over 30 different dishes, over a period to about three hours. Every dish was superb, the service was excellent and the concept is great. Highly recommended.

Tapaz Restaurant

33 Bradshawgate, Bolton BL1 1EL, UK – 01204 395505

I was Really surprised at how good it was. I did not expect such a small restaurant (especially in the centre of Bolton) to be so good. I Took my girlfriend for Valentine's day and we both really enjoyed it. The sangria is awesome and goes well with all the food. It isn't typically Spanish but everything they make has a Spanish twist to it, so it's interesting. I would highly recommend this place

Without a doubt one of my favourite places to eat in Bolton. I love this place! Friendly staff, nothing is too much trouble. Food is absolutely amazing! You must try the Portuguese custard tarts and Sangria
