Hunts Cross Health Centre

Welcome to our practice

We are an NHS practice providing general medical services to residents in Hunts Cross, Woolton, Halewood, Speke and part of Hale Village. We were assessed as "Good" when visited by CQC in January 2016.  

We operate an open list and are accepting new registrants that live within our practice boundary here. Details of how to register can be found to the right of this screen along with a copy of our practice leaflet. 

We continue to develop this website so if there's something you couldn't find, or you think needs updating then let Cathy Hogan, our Practice Manager, know by email.

 

Building Development News - 23 May 2018 update

We have now moved and the transition, we hope, has not caused our patients too many problems. 

We are in the throes of trying to sort out accommodation so that we can offer appointments for doctors and nurses at least for one session per week at Halewood Health Centre, to help some patients who may find it difficult to travel to Speke.  We will update this website as soon as sessions are arranged.

We are aware that some pharmacies are offering to deliver requests for prescriptions to us, so speak with your local pharmacist to see if they are able to help you.  You also have the option of dropping off your prescription requests, posting them to us, or using the online services we offer - please speak with our reception team for more information.

Just a reminder, but our current address is: First Floor Speke Neighbourhood Health Centre, 75 South Parade, Speke, Liverpool L24 2SF. Our new phone number is 0151 317 8550 - we will keep this number when we move back to Hunts Cross, so make sure you record it somewhere safely!

The builders have now taken over our premises in Hunts Cross and work has started already to build our new extension and pharmacy. We expect to be at Speke for about 10 months.

This web page will be updated regularly

 

Online Access to Appointment Booking, Prescription Ordering and Medical Records

We offer online access to patients. Please ask our reception staff for further advice and guidance about application and have a look at this NHS Choices website link explaining the benefits of registration.

 

Get help and advice for treating every day health problems - Examine your Options!

There are lots of services to choose from to get support and advice - not just from GPs at our Practice. Have a look at the "Examine Your Options" website to find out more - it details what's available, when and there's a symptom checker too you might find helpful.

 

  

Would you recommend this practice to friends and family?

The NHS friends and family test (FFT) is an important opportunity for you to provide feedback on the care and treatment you receive and to help us improve services. Please take a moment to answer our Family & Friends Test to give us feedback.  March, 2018 results can be found here - we ran several other surveys in February, so no Family & Friends test responses were received for that month.

Named GP

All registered patients have been allocated an accountable GP.  You can obtain the name of that GP by contacting the practice.  We will also aim to advise you when you see a GP at the practice, when you order a prescription or when you visit reception.  This does not affect your care in any way and, as always, you can see (subject to availability) the doctor of your choice

GP Earnings

NHS England requires that net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice are publicised, and the required disclosure is shown below.

 

However, it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice, and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, or to make any comparison with any other practice.

 

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

 

The average pay for GPs working in Hunts Cross Health Centre in the last financial year 2016/17 was £92,182 before tax and national insurance.

 

This is for 1 full-time GP, 2 part-time GPs and 2 salaried GPs.
