The Community midwives attend the surgery every Friday morning to hold an Ante Natal Clinic.
An appointment is required for this clinic and can be made by contacting your midwife.
District Nursing Team
The District Nursing Team based at the Birkenhead Medical Centre in Laird Street provides nursing care for patients in their own home. They also run a weekly leg ulcer clinic here at the surgery with a referral from the GP.
From 1st of July 2019 you will be seen at the surgery for blood tests please phone to book. The clinics are a Tuesday and Thursday morning.
Children are to be booked to a different HUB – please phone the surgery for details. Anyone with a hospital blood order form or patients requiring a GTT test – these will be booked into Clinic 5 at the hospital.
If you provide unpaid support for a family member, or friend, who couldn’t manage without your help, please let us know. We can acquaint ourselves with your situation and priorities healthcare requests for you were necessary.
If you have had any sort of sample sent for testing or other investigations ordered you must contact the practice for the result. Please allow at least five full working days for the result and ring the surgery after 14:00 for results. The receptionist can only tell you if a result is normal if the GP has marked the results as such. There may be instructions left from the doctor for you to discuss the results in a telephone consultation or to make an appointment; the receptionist can assist you with this. We are not allowed to give out test results to persons other than the patients unless permission has been given by the patient.

The National Health Service provides most health care to most people free of charge, however, there are exceptions. In recent years, more and more organisations have been involving doctors in a whole range of non-medical work. Sometimes the only reason that GPs are asked is because they are in a position of trust or because an insurance company or employer wants to be sure the information provided is true and accurate. Please phone reception for up to date fees.
