CORONAVIRUS UPDATE:

Following Government guidelines ALL patients visiting the practice will be asked to wear a face covering. If you present at the practice without a face covering we will have to send you away .

Face coverings are not only to protect yourself but also the safety of other patients as well as our Doctors, Nurses & other staff members.

We thought this handy government link on ways you can make your own face coverings would be helpful; they don’t have to be a surgical masks.

Foreign Travel

If you require vaccinations for travel you will need an initial phone appointment with the nurse at least 6 weeks before you travel.

After the phone call, you will be booked an appointment to have the vaccinations if required. Please bring any records of previous vaccinations you have had with you.

You will be required to pay a fee for certain immunisations. This will be discussed with the nurse during your appointment.

PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately we are unable to make any travel advice appointments in the immediate short term due to capacity issues and demands on nurse appointments. There is a travel clinic available in Chester and patients are advised to contact the clinic on: 0151 705 3223 to discuss their travel needs at this moment. We apologise for any inconvenience and hope this will be resolved soon.
