Welcome to Longton Health Centre
The practice was “born” when Dr George Hargreaves set up on his own in 1947 with some 1800 patients. He worked from his residence in Chestnut House in the heart of Longton. He was joined in 1953 by Dr Marjorie Wilkinson following an increase in patient numbers to 3500.
The practice continued to expand, and in 1971, was joined by Dr Sam Moss. Dr Moss became Senior Partner in 1986 and continued to lead the practice through many changes until his retirement in 2006. Dr John Loudonsack has now become senior partner for the practice which is responsible for the care of more than 11,000 patients. The doctors, nurses and staff are here to help you make the best use of our expertise and facilities. Please feel free to enquire about the services we offer. The doctors practise together as a non-limited partnership.
