New GP Hubs in Wirral
17 April 2020
Five new hubs have been set up across Wirral for patients who need essential face to face care and are unable to be seen by their registered GP practice.
The hubs, set up by NHS Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), will provide additional capacity during the Coronavirus outbreak and also provide a Home Visiting service component for those patients who are deemed as ‘housebound’ and whose own GP Practice is unable to visit them.
However, the GP Care Hubs and Home Visiting Service can only be accessed after being referred there by the patient’s own GP practice.
The GP hubs will not be offering testing for COVID-19.
The hubs are staffed by GPs and nurses located in temporary units.
The hubs are now operational and other hubs are at NHS sites at:
- The Oval Leisure Centre. Bebington
- Field Road Health Centre
- Victoria Central Primary Care Centre
- Birkenhead Medical Building
- West Wirral Group Practice (The Warrens)
The hubs will initially be operational day times, Monday-Friday, and this will be kept under review.
