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

 

Telephone & IT Issues Wednesday 16.1.19

We apologise to any patient who has attempted to call the practice from 8 through to 3.30 pm.  We had total service interruption today and had no telephone or IT connectivity.  We could not update this website, use the clinical computer system or receive incoming calls to explain what was happening.  This was a city wide NHS problem and completely out of the practice's control.  We ask for your patience whilst we catch up with the day's work which will include preparation and signing of prescriptions, processing requests for information or advice; the impact of today's inability to work will have a knock on effect for the rest of this week. Clearly this has had a huge impact on our ability to function, and we will await the IT services report from our local NHS service provider.

 

Building Development News - January 2019

Building work continues at Hunts Cross, though a mains gas pipe needed moving  and caused considerable delay resulting in us being about 2 months behind schedule.  It now looks as if we will return to Hunts Cross towards the end of March 2019. We will be writing to all patients to inform you of a return to base date in due course.

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.  We have produced a short set of guidance notes to assist patients registering online which we hope you will find helpful.  For patients struggling to get to our new temporary home in Speke this might help enormously for prescription ordering.

Opening Times

Monday - Friday 8.00 am - 6:30pm
Saturday & Sunday Closed 

Lunch time access to our practice

We have skeleton administrative staff cover over lunchtimes between 1 - 2 pm to enable us to host staff meetings, and undertake routine admin work.  The telephone lines will remain open though you will be diverted to another number, and the building remains staffed so we are available should you need us. 

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

Practice Closure for Training

The Practice closes one afternoon per month for staff training. The planned closures are from 1 pm until 8 am the following day. Click here for 2019 closure dates.

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.
