Our practice was founded by Dr Thomas Hayward in 1880 and has been at the heart of the community in Haydock for 140 years. We aim to provide the best possible NHS healthcare for our patients, with high-quality care and services for all.
On 29th June 2020, Haydock Medical Centre merged with our neighbouring practice, Lime Grove Surgery. We are now a team of 50 staff and clinicians, serving over 15,000 patients in Haydock, St Helens, and the local area. Find out more here
Our team has changed with the times. We now offer consultations with GPs, advanced nurse practitioners, a women's health practitioner, specialist mental health practitioners, and a specialist frailty practitioner. We also offer consultations with our practice nurses and health care assistants. Meet the team here
We offer annual reviews for patients with diabetes, asthma, COPD, heart disease, and high blood pressure. We offer 24-hour blood pressure monitoring, ECGs, spirometry (for patients with COPD), and INR monitoring (for patients taking anticoagulant medication). Ear microsuction (for ear wax) is available as an NHS service for our own patients.
We have a weekly baby clinic, for baby checks and immunizations. We have close links with health visitors, school nurses and midwives, and also work closely with district nurses and Macmillan nurses.
