UPDATE: Temporary Closure of Knowsley GP practice site

UPDATE: Gresford Medical Centre re-opens

Gresford Medical Centre has reopened following CQC re-inspection of the premises after completion of urgent building work.

Normal services have been restored, with patients once again able to see a GP or practice nurse at the Gresford site.  

Gresford Medical Centre, part of the Aston Healthcare Ltd group, remains closed following the recent Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection.

The site was closed so urgent building work could be carried out. It was anticipated that the site would be reopened by Monday 5 November. However, whilst the required refurbishment work has been completed, the site remains closed as Aston Healthcare await CQC approval to reopen.

At this time, it is planned that the reopening will be towards the end of November and NHS Knowsley Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) hope to have a confirmed reopening date within the next two weeks.

When the practice was temporarily closed, a phone line was set-up for patients, or their carers who may have queries or concerns with regard to this site closure. This is still in place and a member of the practice team can be contacted on 0151 480 1244 (08:00am – 6:30pm).

All patients registered with Gresford Medical Centre are still able to see a GP or Practice Nurse at a different Aston Healthcare site by contacting the number above, and they should receive notification when the practice reopens.
