Contraceptive coils

Our patients who would like a contraceptive coil fitting or changing can do so by contacting St. Georges Medical Centre (on Field Road) on 0151 630 2080. Please let them know you would like a coil fitting and that you are registered with us and they will arrange an appointment for you.

We hope that we will be offering this service for our patients at The Village Medical Centre soon.

Building Extension

The practice is currently having building work to create a much needed and long overdue extension. Please bear with us over the next few months as we have this work done. The most noticable impact on your visit to the surgery will be a temporarily smaller waiting room and some building noise as well.

The practice currently does not have enough downstairs rooms for all the doctors and nurses and so we need to make use of an upstairs room. In addition we have other members of staff such as pharmacists, social prescribers, physiotherapists and health coaches who often have to work by telephone only in office spaces or out of other practices in Wallasey. 

Once the extension is complete we will have 3 new downstairs consulting rooms and a new purpose built reception area with improved privacy for any sensitive discussions you may need to have with the receptionists. Upstairs we will double the space for our administrative staff and have a new large meeting room which can be used for practice and primary care network meetings as well as our Patient Participation Group.

Photographs and plans will be following soon.

Contraceptive Coils and Implants

Unfortunately the practice will not be able to offer appointments for coils or implants over the next few months...

If you would like to consider these methods of contraception or need them replacing then please contact Wirral Sexual Health.
This is only temporary and as soon as we are able to offer this service at the practice again we will let you know!
