Do not just present yourself to any GP surgery or hospital without seeking advice first.

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how you contact us for appointments will be different at the moment. This is to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus. Please note there are no pre-bookable appointments.

Your GP practice is open and if you need to see your GP, please ring us first on 0151 944 1066 or contact us using eConsult via the pop-up below. The GP will then assess if a face-to-face appointment is required. Click here to see our opening hours.

Exemption cards or badges from wearing a face mask/ face covering

Some people can’t wear a face mask or covering because of a disability or severe distress

Some people may feel more comfortable showing something that says they do not have to wear a face covering. This could be in the form of an exemption card, badge or even a home-made sign.This is a personal choice, and is not necessary in law.

Those who have an age, health or disability reason to not wear a face covering should not be routinely asked to provide any written evidence of this. Written evidence includes exemption cards.

The link below provides Learning Disability Exemption Cards, Autism Exemption Cards and Parent and Child Exemption Cards. Download the PDF below to print your exemption card

  • COVID-19 Vaccinations for Carers

GROUP 6: At the same time as adults under 65 years with long term conditions, the vaccine will also be offered to unpaid adult carers - those who are in receipt of a carer's allowance, or those who are the main carer of an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer falls ill.

Any patients seeking to be verified as a carer should contact the Sefton Carers Centre on 0151 288 6060 or at their website at Sefton Carers Centre. They will inform the practice of respective individuals who will require inviting for vaccination.
