Background To The Practice
We are a busy training practice and have medical students on a daily basis.
The practice was originally situated on the corner of Marshall Road and Albert Road where there had been a doctor from the middle of the 19th century. The practice moved to the health centre in 1979.
The Practice Area
Levenshulme is an urban area of the City of Manchester, in North West England. It borders Longsight, Gorton, Burnage and Stockport, and is approximately 4 miles (6.4 km) from Manchester City Centre on the A6 road. Levenshulme is also situated on the main Manchester Piccadilly to London Euston railway line. Levenshulme railway station is bypassed by inter-city train services but is served by local commuter trains.
Historically a part of Lancashire, Levenshulme, a former township, is predominantly residential with minimal industrial presence. The majority of its economy is generated via small retail establishments with a predominance of fast food shops, public houses and antique stores. It has a multi-cultural and multi-ethnic population and in the 2001 census it was determined that the population was 12,691.
Levenshulme has an Irish population of approximately 7.0% which is twice the Manchester average, and as a consequence it is sometimes called 'County Levenshulme' in reference to the County structure in Ireland. Irish produce, including soda bread, red lemonade and Irish newspapers, can be bought in Levenshulme's shops, whilst local cafes serve up boiled bacon and cabbage, a traditional Irish dish. The demographics within the district are changing with increasing numbers of (mostly Muslim) people of South Asian origin and a growing number of Africans, settling in Levenshulme. Over a third of the population belong to an ethnic minority. In recent times Levenshulme has also seen an influx of eastern Europeans moving into the area, bringing about Polish confectionery shops and the development of a Czech bar in the place of the Wheatsheaf on Stockport Road. Many students also rent accommodation in the area.
In the 2001 Census, the ethnic make up of Levenshulme was:
Ethnic Group Person count Percentage
|Asian/Asian-British: Other Asian
|Mixed: White & Black Caribbean
|Mixed: White & Asian
|Mixed: White & Black African
|Other Ethnic Groups
|Black/Black-British: Other Black
