They seek to gain valuable experience from being based at The Practice, you may be asked to consent to a registrar videoing your consultation; this is for training purpose and will be viewed by the registrar and their trainer.

Making an appointment

If you need medical advice or treatment, please ring us on 0151 295 9440 – our opening hours are 08.00 – 18.00 hrs  (Telephone access to 18.30 hrs)

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.



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.


Visiting the surgery

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. You will also be asked to ensure you wear a face covering to your appointment.


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.


Evening & weekend access

Need urgent care over evenings or weekends, when our practice is closed? Contact NHS 111 at: 111.nhs.uk or dial 111 at any time. They offer over the phone advice or face-to-face appointments with an out-of-hours GP, walk-in centre, or local hospital A&E department if required.

If you are unable to access a suitable GP appointment during practice hours,  did you know we can also refer you to a GP access hub in the city, where you can get advice and treatment over evenings and weekends?

Walk-in centres can offer advice and treatment for minor injuries and illnesses. Local walk-in centres operate daily between 8am–8pm, 7 days a week - just call 0300 100 1004 first to make an appointment first.

Call 999 in a medical emergency. This is when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk, such as a heart attack or stroke. Please avoid turning up to A&E for non-life threatening emergencies.
