NOW AVAILABLE AT LITHERLAND TOWN HALL FOR GLOVERS LANE PATIENTS
New services have launched on 1st October 2018 that offer a range of routine, pre-bookable, appointments with GPs, practice nurses and medical specialists outside of our surgery’s normal hours.
These new services will increase Sefton residents’ options for booking a non-urgent GP appointment on weekday evenings as well as on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
In addition, people will be able to book appointments with a range of other healthcare professionals working as part of these teams.
Dr Gustavo Berni from South Sefton Primary Health Care (that run the service) and local GP, said:
“Being able to book an appointment is something we know can be hard for people to do, especially for those in work when surgeries are open. Now, people can book an evening or weekend appointment with the new service through their regular GP practice.”
Although you may not see your usual GP, be assured the clinician you see will have access to your health records with your consent, so will know all about you and the best way to treat you.
When and where will appointments be available?
Mon to Fri, 5pm – 8pm
Sat & Sun, 10am – 1pm
Litherland Town Hall, Hatton Hill Rd, L21 9JL
How will patients access these services?
All patients registered with a Sefton GP will be able to book appointments with their local extended access service via their own practice.
Anyone contacting NHS 111 who may be appropriately seen by the extended GP access service will also be offered an appointment by the call handler.
Are there things the new services won’t offer?
These are not ‘list based’ services, so patients cannot register with them like a regular GP practice. It is therefore not intended to offer all services that you would expect from a traditional GP practice.
Whilst the services will prescribe any medicines that patients’ need as a result of their appointment, they will not be able to issue repeat prescriptions. This remains the responsibility of the GP practice the patient is registered with.
