Have you considered self care?

Many things get better by themselves, or with simple measures.  If you need help with self-managing your problem, we recommend the following:

However, if you still require our help, we have a number of options available, outlined below.

Same day access

Same day appointments are released at 8am

You can either:

1) Turn up at the practice and request an appointment.
2) Telephone the practice on 0151 295 8770.

Due to the nature of the same day appointments there is no specific choice of clinician. The receptionist may ask you to give/write a brief description of the problem so that you are seen appropriately.

Pre-booked appointments

To ensure continuity of care, and give the option of a specific pre-booked time and date, you can book ahead with individual clinicians. This can be done at reception, over the phone, or online. The wait for a pre-booked appointment may be over a week. It is essential that you arrive on time. If you fail to attend without a good reason on multiple occasions this service will be withdrawn. 

Extended access

We also now offer a variety of pre bookable GP, Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Nurse Practitioner and Practice Nurse appointments from 7.30am to 7.30pm.  Please contact reception for more details.

Telephone consultations

Ring us and leave a contact number with a member of our admin team.   One of our clinicians will call back. We will give you an approximate time the clinician will call eg between 11.00 – 12.00. There are many problems we can deal with over the phone, especially if no examination is required and the problem is not too complex. A prescription can be provided if necessary

Lateness policy

If you are late for your appointment, you may need to re-book.  This is to ensure that other patients are not delayed, and because most problems cannot be adequately managed in anything less than the already restricted consultation time.

,ractice closures

At certain times the practice closes within the usual advertised opening hours:

-Wednesdays: Closed 12-2pm weekly, and all afternoon from 12pm on the following Wednesdays in 2020 for training: Jan 29th; Feb 26th; March 25th; April 29th; May 27th; June 24th; July 29th; September 23rd; October 28th; November 25th.

Please note that eConsults are switched off when capacity is reached, and a banner will appear above when this happens.
This is generally around 1-2pm each day but can be sooner if demand is very high.

Urgent problems will always still be attended to, and phone lines remain open for urgent problems even when routine capacity is reached.
