Face to Face Appointments

We at St Georges Medical Centre would like to assure our patients that we have always been, and will continue to offer, face to face appointments for patients where required. Due to the nature of the pandemic we have had to limit access to the practice in order to make the practice ‘COVID secure’; a waiting room that could previously hold 15-20 patients can now only hold 5/6 if they are to socially distance properly.  We also have a duty of care to protect not only our staff, but patients who may be more vulnerable to the consequences of catching COVID-19.  We are aware that although restrictions are easing in England from 17th May, there are still increases in infection rates in certain strains of the virus. NHS England have not yet released updated guidance to practices on what is required from the 17th May and until such guidance is issued the practice will continue to operate as it has been.  We are currently encouraging patients to phone the practice or contact us via e-consult (on our website) in the first instance rather than just walk in, and patients will be triaged by a member of the team.  Face to face appointments will continue to be offered where required. We thank you for your continued support.

Coronavirus Update

Please do not attend the GP surgery, community pharmacy or hospital if:

·         you think you might have coronavirus or if you have been in close contact with someone with coronavirus

·         if you have a new continuous cough and/or high temperature  

.      a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

We are currently triaging all appointments where possible by phone. If the GP feels you need to be seen in the Practice you will be offered a face to face appointment. Please be patient with us during this time.

At this time the Practice has disabled online booking of face to face appointments and we encourage you to use our online consultation service which can be accessed through the website. 

Further guidance can be found at Gov.uk -Stay at home Guidance

Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also be infected by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.

Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue and wash your hands, or use a sanitizer gel.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

You can find the latest information and advice from Public Health England at nhs.uk.

As well as the extended hours appointments that St Georges Medical Centre offers, patients also have access to the Wirral Extended Access Service. This service offers evening and weekend appointments and these can be booked via the reception team or by calling 0151 652 6077 from 10am-6pm at weekends.
