Old Hall Surgery is a GP Practice serving 5,700 patients in and around Ellesmere Port.

Our GP surgeries 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.

Out of Hours, Emergencies and A&E

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 Accident & Emergency 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.
