Welcome to Our Practice

Welcome to our practice website. We are open and here to help you.

Register your data opt-out preference

National data opt-out

You can choose whether your confidential patient information is used for research and planning. To find out more visit nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters

You do not need to do anything if you are happy about how your confidential patient information is used. You can change your choice at any time.


Type 1 opt-out: medical records held at your GP practice

You can also tell your GP practice if you do not want your confidential patient information held in your GP medical record to be used for purposes other than your individual care. This is commonly called a type 1 opt-out. This opt-out request can only be recorded by your GP practice.


Type 2 opt-out: information held by NHS Digital

Previously you could tell your GP practice if you did not want us, NHS Digital, to share confidential patient information that we collect from across the health and care service for purposes other than your individual care. This was called a type 2 opt-out.

The type 2 opt-out was replaced by the national data opt-out. Type 2 opt-outs recorded on or before 11 October 2018 have been automatically converted to national data opt-outs.

Visiting the surgery

From Monday 19th July 2021 In line with current Government guidance patients are required to continue to wear a face covering in all healthcare settings.

Please click here for more information

For when we feel that you need to come in to the practice for a face-to-face appointment, we have a range of COVID-19 safety measures in place, including regular cleaning of all patient areas and social distancing. 

If you have a disability or condition which means you cannot wear a face covering or cannot communicate with someone else who is wearing a face mask, or if you require any other adjustments before your appointment, please let us know.

Making an appointment

If you need medical advice or treatment, please ring us on 0151 2953888 – our opening hours are 8.00am - 6.30pm Monday-Friday.

Face-to-face appointments are available to all patients if there is a clinical need, but you should call us first or complete an eConsult form on this website.

Telephone triage

This GP practice is currently operating a telephone triage system. This means you will be asked to provide some brief information about your healthcare need over the phone with a member of our team.

This will help us to assess the most appropriate way to provide your care, which could include an online, video, telephone or face-to-face consultation. If you have a preference, please just let the practice team know.

e-Consult

For routine or non-urgent issues, you can also contact us online at any time by filling out the form below. We will respond to you as soon as possible, usually within two working days.

Evenings and weekends

If you need urgent help or advice, particularly during the evenings and weekends when our practice is closed, please contact NHS 111. This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 111.nhs.uk or by dialling 111.

NHS 111 is staffed by fully trained advisors and clinicians who can provide over the phone advice and can arrange face to face appointments with an out of hours GP, at a local walk-in centre, or a local hospital A&E department if required.

Covid-19 Vaccine

Following extensive trials, the first safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine has been approved in the UK and is now available to priority groups.
Vaccinations are being delivered according to priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). 

When it is the right time for you to receive your vaccination, you will receive an invitation to come forward. This may be via the phone, or through a letter either from us or the national booking system.

We know lots of people will be eager to get protected but we are asking people not to contact us to get an appointment as you will not be able to get one until you are contacted.

Please access this website for information on the Covid 19 Vaccination program -

Anyone with coronavirus symptoms - a high temperature or a new, continuous cough, a loss of taste or smell– who needs medical advice, should use the dedicated NHS 111 coronavirus service online at: www.111.nhs.uk/COVID-19.  You should only call NHS 111 for this if you can’t get help online, as their phone lines are very busy at this time.
