In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with our nurse practitioner rather than a doctor.
Nurse practitioners are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly.
If you would like a chaperone present during your consultation, please advise the receptionist when booking your appointment.
We have a limited number of appointment each day for urgent on the day problems. There is a strict criteria for these appointments. Please speak to our care navigation team too speak about availability and eligibility
We always encourage our patients to come in to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available.
It is possible to see more patients in surgery in the time it takes to visit someone at home. However, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:00.
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls.
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
Unfortunately, GPs are not able to treat dental problems. Please contact your NHS dentist, or the NHS website to find a service that meets your needs.
For urgent eye problems you can sef-refer to St Paul's Eye Hospital. This is a 24h service which is adjacent to the A&E department of the Royal Liverpool University Hospital.
