Penketh Health Centre
Welcome along to our surgery website where we hope you will quickly benefit from a user friendly layout and a wealth of information about our healthcare services. Find out when we’re open and what to do when we’re not, all from the comfort of your own home.
This practice is now able to offer patients the additional choice of evening or weekend non-urgent appointments. These appointments are available to patients across Warrington as part of the Warrington Health Plus Extended Access Service.
The appointments are available at Bath Street Health and Wellbeing Centre between the hours of 6pm to 8pm weekdays and 8am to 8pm on Saturdays and Sundays, for non-urgent patients only, on a first come first serve basis. The appointments must be booked in advance and can only be accessed following referral to the service by your own practice. It is not a same-day appointment service.
If you would find a later or weekend appointment more convenient, please ask the receptionist when booking a non urgent GP appointment.
Important Notice to Patients
If you or someone you have cared for has returned from Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria or Senegal within the last 21 days and have or have had a fever in the past 24 hours you MUST NOT attend the surgery. Telephone the surgery on 01925 725644 and inform the Receptionist before booking an appointment.
Patients are now able to access, via SystmOnline a summary of their patient record. This will include allergies, sensitivities and medication. Only information recorded by the practice will be visible.
Are you over 75? If you are over 75 years of age you will now be allocated a "named GP" who will have overall responsibility for your care. This does not prevent you from seeing any other GP in the Practice. You will receive written confirmation of which GP this is in the near future.
