Frequently asked questions

When and where are appointments available?

Mon to Fri, 5pm – 9pm and Sat & Sun, 9 – 1pm at The Family Surgery, 107 Liverpool Rd, Birkdale, PR8 4DB

How can patients access these services?

All patients registered with a Sefton GP will be able to book appointments with their local extended access service via their own practice.

Are there things the services don't offer?

These are not ‘list based’ services, so patients cannot register with them like a regular GP practice.  It is therefore not intended to offer all services that you would expect from a traditional GP practice.

Whilst the services will prescribe any medicines that patients’ need as a result of their appointment, they will not be able to issue repeat prescriptions.  This remains the responsibility of the GP practice the patient is registered with.
