Coronavirus Update

The situation with coronavirus is changing rapidly.


We have now moved to phone consultations instead of face to face consultations, whenever possible.


We now have an option of providing video consultations with our own clinicians 

We are now avoiding booking face to face consultations at the practice whenever possible. 

Many of our patients have long term conditions. We will make arrangements for follow-up and monitoring of these conditions on a case-by-case basis. Broadly speaking, we will defer routine tests or checks until later this year if we can. In some cases, a telephone review may still be appropriate. 

Guidance on what to do if you or someone close to you is unwell with symptoms of cough or fever


There is detailed advice here on social isolation for people that are in high risk groups. Everyone else should practice social distancing - see below (please note that this guidance is up to date as of 17th March 2020, but may change)



We aim to provide the best possible healthcare for our patients, with high-quality care and services for all. 

Our practice was founded by Dr Thomas Hayward in 1880 and has been at the heart of the community for 140 years. Our team has changed with the times and now offers consultations with GPs, advanced nurse practitioners and mental health specialist practitioners, as well as with our practice nurses and health care assistants.

We recently moved into brand new purpose-designed premises rated as BREEAM excellent.

You can contact us online using eConsult and by email, and we now offer online GP consultations using Push Doctor.  Make repeat prescription requests directly using Patient Access

We are an accredited training practice and are linked to Health Education North West, Manchester University and Edge Hill University. We train GPs, medical students, physical and mental health nurses, health care assistants, GP assistants, and physician associates. 


We recently scored near-maximum points (542 points out of 545) on the Quality Outcomes Framework - a score of the quality of care provided across a range of medical conditions. Our clinical pharmacist manages the quality of prescribing and our practice nurses offer clinics for a range of conditions including asthma, COPD and diabetes.

We aim to provide the same service to our patients regardless of age, sex, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, nationality or religious beliefs. We are a safe, welcoming service that treats everyone with respect and without discrimination. 

The 2019 national patient survey results for our practice show that:

  • 95% felt the clinician they saw recognized or understood their mental health needs

  • 97% say the clinician they saw was good at treating them with care and concern

  • 98% say the clinician they saw was good at listening to them

  • 100% had confidence and trust in the clinician they saw

Haydock Medical Centre is currently considering a merger with our neighboring practice, Lime Grove Surgery. Find out more here
