Welcome to our Noticeboard, we will be posting the latest health news here.
Old Hall Surgery has struggled to recruit Salaried Doctors in the past 2/ 3 years since the retirement of Dr Sally Shaw, Dr Alan Birch and Dr Karen Griffiths.
We have finally managed to recruit 2 new Salaried Doctors:
• Dr Richard Dufton is starting with us at end of February
•Dr Saira Javed is starting with us at the beginning of March.
Until they start with us there are some days that we are unable to provide GP cover in the surgery after 4.30pm. We have 5 GP Partners who also work as Partners at other surgeries;
• Dr Tracy Shaw, Dr Marc England and Dr Emily Morton at Whitby Group Practice.
• Dr David Thorburn and Dr Andrew McAlavey at Great Sutton Medical centre.
If you need an urgent appointment on one of the days when we are short of GP cover a GP Partner of the surgery will call you and if they feel you need to be seen you may be asked to see them at the Practice they are working at on that day.
Thank you for your patience at this difficult time
Julie Spinks, Practice Manager
Tracy O’Farrell - Advanced Nurse Practitioner - starting at the end of January 2018.
It is with great regret that Old Hall Surgery would like to inform all our patients that Dr Phipps will be retiring from Old Hall Surgery at the end of February 2018. We are sure the patients feel the same way as our staff that it has been a privilege to have known him and to work with him all these years. We are also sure he will miss all the Doctor and Nurse colleagues, all the staff and those patients that he has come to know well over the years. We would like to wish him well for the future – we are sure he will have many interests to pursue.

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.
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 this 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.
We launched a new online service on October 3, watch the video below:
The PPG is made up of a group of volunteer patients and staff from the practice, they meet on a regular basis to discuss the services on offer, and how improvements can be made for the benefit of patients and the practice.
Our next PPG meeting is January 30th, 2018 at 6.30 pm. All welcome. more details here.
