Doctors

The Practice was founded in the 1940’s in the Westminster area and we moved to our current purpose built premises, with full disabled access facilities, in the heart of Ellesmere Port in September 1992.

The Practice is managed by our partners who are available for appointments as stated below.

Please note that doctors are required to attend training and meetings so they may not always be available in which case you will be offered an appointment with an alternative doctor.

Specialist areas

Our doctors specialise in certain areas in addition to their general practice responsibilities.

Training: Since the early seventies the practice has been committed to the training of Medical Students and General Practitioner Registrars. Sometimes it may be requested that your consultation be videoed. This is for training purposes and will only be viewed by the GP registrar and her/his trainer.
