An appointment system is in operation in our surgery. An appointment is for 10 minutes and is for one person only. If you think you will require longer, please ask for a double appointment.
All patients will be offered an appointment with a doctor, for clinically urgent cases, within 24 hours, normally at the end of morning surgery.
Routine appointments can be booked in advance with the doctor of your choice – a maximum of 5 weeks for a morning surgery and 1 week for an evening surgery.
We now have the facility to send you appointment confirmations and reminders by text. If you would like to use this service, please make sure we have an up to date mobile number for you.
We teach student doctors from Liverpool University. You may be asked if you would talk to a student, or with your permission the student may be present when you see the doctor or nurse. Please feel free to say if you would prefer not to see the student.
Requests for home visits are available at the discretion of the doctor for patients who are too ill to travel to the surgery. If you think a home visit is necessary, we would be grateful if you could telephone between 9am and 10:30am.
Requests for repeat prescriptions should only be made at the surgery or by telephone after 11am and will normally be ready for collection after 11am, 48 hours later, excluding weekends and public holidays. If you prefer your prescription to be posted to you please enclose a SAE.
You may find it useful to tear off the request form attached to your prescription, ticking the items you require.
The easiest way to request prescriptions is via Online Access, if you would like to register then please download and complete an application form. Prescriptions will be transferred to your chemist electronically if you have registered with a chemist.
