About us

Living Well Partnership was formed in 2017 following the merger of four GP surgeries and three smaller branch sites. The GP partners, many of whom continue to lead LWP, were brought together by a growing awareness that we could deliver more streamlined medical care by sharing resources rather than operating on a smaller scale as individual practices.

We are delighted that our patients have benefited from faster access to a larger range of services while achieving operational efficiencies behind the scenes.

As a practice that strives for continuing clinical excellence, we are passionate about helping to train the next generation of competent clinicians. We are a thriving and progressive training hub supporting physician associates, nurses, HCA’s, pharmacy technicians, independent prescribers, medical students, newly qualified doctors and GP registrars through their academic and clinical education.
