Practice Staff


From time to time we may have locum doctors working in the practice to provide extra surgeries when one of the partners is away on holiday or on educational courses. These will always be fully qualified General Practitioners.

All GP Practices are required to declare the mean earnings for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

The mean earnings for GPs working in Spital Surgery in the financial year ended 31st March 2017 was £39,780 before deduction of employee’s superannuation contributions, tax and National Insurance. This is the average pay for the 1 full-time GP and 5 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months during that year.

We are a member of the Wirral Primary Care Federation. This is a not-for-profit Federation of 26 independent GP Practices covering 203,936 patients, over 61% of the Wirral population. For more information about The Wirral Primary Care Federation Click here

Nurses hours –  by appointment 08:30 – 12:30 & 14:00 – 18:00.

Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.

Admin Team

The practice manager is involved in managing all of the business aspects of the practice such as making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, human resources, finance, patient safety, premises and equipment and information technology. The practice manager supports the GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services and also helps to develop extended services to enhance patient care.

Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
