Important - Heswall and Pensby Group Practice is merging with Commonfield Road Surgery. From 1st May 2024 we will be merging with Commonfield Road Surgery following recent approval by the ICB. For further information, please see our Patient Newsletter - November 2023, available in the latest news.
We have a wide range of clinicians at our surgery.
You will be directed to the most appropriate clinician when you contact the surgery.
In addition to our GP’s, this maybe an Advanced Nurse Practitioner, a Physician Associate, a Pharmacist, a Health Coach or a Social Prescriber.
Advanced Nurse Practitioners are Registered Nurses who have done extra training and academic qualifications to be able to examine, assess, make diagnoses, treat, prescribe and make referrals for patients who present with both acute and long term problems.
Physician Associates (PAs) are medically trained, healthcare professionals, who work alongside doctors and other members of the practice team to provide a range of patient care.
Pharmacist has responsibility for medicines optimisation within the PCN, medicines reconciliation, the provision of expert advice on clinical medicines and the undertaking of structured clinical reviews with patients to proactively manage their complex polypharmacy needs.
Social Prescribers provide immediate non-clinical support and connect people to community groups and agencies with the aim of improving their health and wellbeing. Improving your lifestyle or taking control of a practical problem can be very challenging and people often feel daunted at the prospect of change and don’t always know where to start.
Social prescribing link workers help give you the confidence, encouragement and support you need to make and sustain changes that will help you to feel better in yourself.
