All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice. The average pay for GPs working in Penketh Health Centre based on the last financial year was £61,263.00 before tax and National Insurance.This is for 1 full time GPs and 9 part time GPs.
Disclaimer: NHS England require that the net earnings of GPs in practice be published, see above. However the method of calculating this data does not take into account the time each GP devotes to the practice and therefore should not be used to compare one practice with another or to draw conclusions about GP earnings in general.
Sr Angela Syddall has now retired and we wish her every happiness in a happy and relaxed retirement.

Amanda Poole has now joined us as a Practice Nurse and Karen Perrins has returned to us.
If you require a sick note please advise the receptionist at the time of booking so that your request can be directed to the appropriate person. Please note that it is not always necessary to see a GP for this and we advise you appropriately.
We are currently recruiting for another GP and ask that you bear with us until we can appoint another new GP.
|A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.|
We have a well-equipped treatment room, staffed by a team of dedicated and experienced district nurses. The nurses perform an invaluable function in the community, providing continuity of care to those patients who are unable to come to the surgery because of their medical condition. In addition we have a team of health visitors, school health advisors and midwives attached to the practice. Together, these disciplines offer a considerable level of expertise to the community.
The practice also offers the services of a dietician, a chiropodist, a physiotherapist, a smoking cessation advisor, a mental health care team and an alcohol dependency counsellor. Your doctor can advise you on the procedure for making use of these services.
