Welcome to Cornerstone Healthcare. We are based at Bentham Road Health Centre, Mill Hill and serve the whole of South West Blackburn.
Cornerstone Healthcare is more than just a GP surgery. We are a Community Interest Company, which means that any profits made are ploughed back into serving the local community. Our patients can even become free members of our company so that they can help decide how our services should run and develop.
Over the next few years we will continue to expand; with more doctors and nurses, more appointments and larger premises, the services we are able to offer will continue to expand, meaning our patients get the most convenient and best of care.
We have a great staff team at Cornerstone Healthcare, who are all eager to give you the best service and care possible.

When you register, we will ask you to make an appointment to see either the practice nurse or healthcare assistant for a new patient health check. This will make sure that our records are accurate and all routine checks to promote your health and wellbeing (such as blood pressure/smear tests/mammograms) are up-to-date.
