Book or change an appointment


PATCHS is an online service that allows you to quickly and easily access GP services. Answer a few simple questions and PATCHS will get you the help you need. PATCHS is only available during surgery hours.

To book an appointment

  • Request an appointment online (PATCHS)
  • Phone us  0151 724 2396 Monday to Friday from 8am to 6.30pm (excluding bank holidays and training closures)
  • Visit the surgery and speak with a receptionist Monday to Friday from 8am to 6.30pm (excluding bank holidays and training closures). See details of future bank holiday closures and training closures (one Wednesday each month).

    When you get in touch, our reception team will ask what you need help with.

    This will help us assess your needs and identify the most suitable doctor, nurse or health professional to help you.

  • We strongly encourage patients to use other online NHS applications like MyGP or Patient Access to book appointments. Please contact the practice for further information.  

About your appointment

When you contact us, we may offer you a consultation:

  • By phone
  • Face to face at the surgery

Appointments by phone, video call or online consultation can be more flexible. This means the doctor or nurse can help you sooner. Read more about our appointment triage system.
