Part of the local Healthwatch programme is to carry out Enter and View visits. Healthwatch Wigan and Leigh authorised representatives carry out these visits to health and social care services to find out how they are being run and make recommendations where there are areas for improvement.

81% of patient, carers/family members rated Leigh Family Practice as good, very good or excellent
- 80% of patients, carers/family members felt that they had enough time during appointments to speak with the GP/nurse/clinician. The remaining 20% said that they did not always have enough time and felt slightly rushed on occasions
- 91% of patients, carers/family members rated the staff overall as good, very good or excellent
