How to make an appointment

Please call our main switchboard number on 0151 317 6266 to book an appointment. Urgent cases are seen on the day. If your condition is non-urgent, you can expect to see a GP within two working days, though you may have to wait longer if you want to see a particular GP. If you don’t need an appointment within two working days, you also have the option to book up to 4 weeks in advance if this is more convenient for you. Nurses based in our practice treat patients for a wide range of common conditions. You can expect to see a nurse within two working days and all of them are qualified to prescribe from a range of medicines. You can book up to a month ahead for clinics – please see the ‘services and clinics’ section.


What if I can't get an appointment

The surgery is particularly busy on Mondays and Fridays especially during the winter months. We offer pre-bookable appointments up to 4 weeks in advance.If your appointment is not urgent, try to book on a less busy day after 10.30am. Last month 22 patients failed to turn up for their appointment. If you let us know as soon as possible you can't attend your appointment, we can then make it available for another patient. If we can’t offer you an immediate appointment, we may phone back to offer you a cancellation slot. You can book to have a telephone consultation with a doctor if you wish. He or she will ring you at an agreed time on the telephone number you have given. If you are only available on a mobile phone, you will be expected to ring the practice at the agreed time.

Furthermore you can use our e-consultation service via this website and a GP will be in touch 


Same day appointments

We are a busy practice, and providing some same day appointments makes it easier for you to see a doctor quickly. 60 % of our GP appointments are urgent same day appointments. You can phone at 8am or 3pm for urgent same day appointments only.These appointments cannot be used for repeat medications or sick notes.
