When We Are Closed
All out of hours services are the responsibility of the Wirral Primary Care Trust. All patients can access this service between the hours of 18:30 p.m. and 08:00 a.m. Mondays to Fridays and all day and night Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays by first ringing the surgery.
Alternatively the patient line for the Out of Hours service is 0151 678 8496
If you decide to ring the surgery, have a pencil and paper ready to take down any numbers given.
When the surgery and OOH are both closed, (08:00 - 08:30 and 18:00 - 18:30) we offer a strict emergency policy only, if you need urgent attention by a GP during this time telephone 327 1391 and you will be given a mobile telephone number to ring.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS Direct
(0845 4647) to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
