How To Book Appointments


  From 23rd April 2018 we will be operating a new appointment system. 

  Please click here to see how the new system will work.


  •     A percentage of our appointments are available for booking up to 3 weeks in advance, subject to individual doctors leave etc. These can be booked by calling 01704 878661 or calling in to reception.

  •      A number of appointments are now available to book in advance online. For information on how to register for this service and a link through to the website please click here.

  •      Each doctor also offers telephone consultations each day which can be booked in advance. If you feel that your problem does not need a physical examination then these slots can be booked either in person or via the telephone system as detailed above.

  •      Our practice nurse appointments are available between 8.45am and 5.00pm most days. These appointments are available to book in advance either in person or via the telephone system.

  •      If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to offer the slot to someone else and re-arrange your appointment for a more convenient time.

  •      We also offer an evening surgery once a week and a Saturday morning service, in addition to our regular service, for patients who cannot easily attend surgery through the week (i.e. they have work commitments). These are routine appointments which must be booked in advance either in person at reception or via the telephone system.

  •      Southport & Formby now offer a 7 day service to patients who struggle to attend surgeries during normal working hours. These routine appointments are pre-bookable in advance and are available Monday to Friday in the evenings and also Saturday and Sunday mornings. For more information please click here.
