0151 608 4347 – Appointments can be booked by calling the Practice from 8:00 am – 6:30 pm, Monday – Friday. Appointments can also be booked online. To do this, please visit the practice to complete a registration form for Patient Access. You will need to bring two forms of identification with you, one of which should be photographic.
We endeavour to see all of our patients in a timely manner. Our receptionist will ask all patients for a brief description of their problem so we can navigate you to the most appropriate clinician or service, which may include a walk-in centre or a local pharmacy. Did you know that your local pharmacy can treat minor illnesses?
Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services, results, and direct you to the right person depending on your health issues or queries. Receptionists make most of the appointments with the GPs, nurses, and other healthcare professionals attached to the practice.
They have a very difficult job dealing with telephone calls and enquiries from every direction, trying to please a range of patients and clinical staff whilst remaining calm, courteous, efficient, sympathetic, and professional, so please be patient with them.
If telephoning for an appointment, advice, or a home visit, the receptionist may ask you for a few details. They have been trained to make these enquiries on our behalf so we may help you in the most appropriate and efficient way.
Our practice operates a zero-tolerance policy regarding verbal or physical attacks. Our receptionists are here to help you. To successfully provide these services, a mutual respect between all the staff and patients has to be in place.
Please do not uses PATCHS if you are abroad.
If you have previously used eConsult, please note this has changed to PATCHS. Please follow the link above to submit a PATCHS request. Do not use PATCHS in cases of emergency. If you are submitting a PATCHS request for a child, please select I would like to make a request for someone I care for – PATCHS requests will not be accepted in the name of the parent/guardian. Please be aware that the GP may need to speak with you and may call you on the day you submit your PATCHS request.
Online booking of appointments is currently for routine GP appointments only. More complex procedures may need appointment slots up to 30 minutes or more, compared with a standard 10 minute appointment. In order for us to ensure you are allocated the correct time for more specialist appointments, we kindly request that you contact the practice. If you have more than one problem, you will need an additional appointment which may be at a different time or day.
If you can’t attend an appointment, please cancel it by phoning 0151 608 4347, send a reply to your appointment reminder received by text (SMS), or email email@example.com.
Cancelling appointments will allow us to re-book it for someone else, particularly for emergency appointments. Repeated non-attendances without informing us/cancelling seriously affects your relationship with the Practice and may result in you being asked to leave the Practice.
You can book an appointment to see a GP in the evening, at weekends and on bank holidays.

Home visits are for:
The average patient takes 10 minutes in the surgery. The average visit (including time there and back) takes one hour. This means that most visits are delayed until after a surgery.
No transport or “not well enough to walk down” is not a valid reason for a home visit. By the nature of the service, most people visiting the surgery are unwell and many have to use exceptional means to get us. Ask a friend or family member to drive you, take public transport or use a taxi.
You may be telephoned after you request a home visit
Some patients may be telephoned by the doctor on requesting a visit. The symptoms and situation will be clarified to assess clinical need and urgency – at this point the doctor may:
