DO NOT come to surgery without a prior appointment, you will not be seen.
TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT:
Call the surgery on 0151 228 9101, medical queries will be handled by a clinician. Please note we are no longer offering an extended hours service.
Only medical emergencies will be seen at the surgery. On Government advice, all routine appointments have been cancelled.
To minimise risk we are encouraging all patients to use our online prescription service. We have now suspended the previous requirement for you to attend surgery to in order to register for electronic prescriptions. Please call surgery on 0151 228 9101 and we shall issue you with the necessary code.
Smartphone users can choose to download the NHS app. This app can be used to book appointments, order repeat prescriptions and view your medical record summary. Verification is online and requires a photographic id (driver’s license or passport)
If you are unable to use online services you may post your request in the box outside Surgery.
Are you over 70, terminally ill, registered as housebound, or have other valid reasons why you cannot get your essential medicine?
Then please call us on 0151 228 9101 as we should be able to take your repeat prescription over the phone.
