Temporary change to practice operating model
Primary Care 24 is completely committed to looking after you and your health. COVID-19 (Corona virus) is putting a lot of pressure on the whole NHS, including general practices. We have decided after careful thought that we will be able to run a better service by bringing the Seaforth Practice to join our practice in Litherland Town Hall. This will help us to keep our levels of staffing safe and provide the best care possible for you.
This decision has not been an easy one to make, but we are confident that operating from one site will be the best way forward.
New arrangements from 18.03.20
Seaforth patients – GP practice telephone number will remain the same 0151 949 1717. Please continue to use this number to contact the practice. Please do not attend the practice in person as the building will be closed.
Those patients who have appointments booked will be contacted to rearrange the appointment at Litherland.
Litherland patients – these changes will have no impact on you.
