Welcome to our Noticeboard, we will be posting the latest health news here.
The PPG is made up of a group of volunteer patients and staff from the practice, they meet on a regular basis to discuss the services on offer, and how improvements can be made for the benefit of patients and the practice.
The beauty of PPGs is that there is no set way in which they work - the aims and work of each group entirely depends on local needs - but they are have the aim of making sure that their practice puts the patient, and improving health, at the heart of everything it does. Read more here.
We are always keen to hear from patients who would be willing to devote a little time to helping the PPG – either as a committee member, or with the organisation and running of events, or have ideas for information sessions and events. If you are interested please contact us or email the PPG group at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our next PPG meeting is 1st November at 6.30 pm. All welcome. more details here.
Old Hall Surgery is a GP Practice serving over 5,500 patients in and around Ellesmere Port.
The practice doctors are Dr Alan Birch, Dr Karen Griffiths, Dr Martyn Phipps and Dr Josephine Hutchinson.
In addition to our GP surgeries we offer a wide range of services designed to support patients during illness and schemes to help their general health such as stopping smoking and preventing heart disease.
Our practice is open from 8am to 6.30pm, Monday to Friday, when the surgery is closed, for urgent problems please call NHS 111, this is a free call from landlines and mobiles. This is also the number for the Out of hours service. This is a GP led service provided by local Doctors.
Please do not use this instead of the Practice. A&E Departments should only be used in a critical or life threatening situation, they provide immediate emergency care for people who show symptoms of serious illness or who are badly injured.
From June 2016 we will be changing our appointments system to EMIS appointments. Access to order your prescriptions and book appointments will be on the same system.
