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 NHS healthcare for our patients, with high-quality care and services for all. In August 2021 the Care Quality Commission assessed the practice as Good in all areas of care and management.
We are 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, family planning nurse, diabetes nurse, mental health nurses, and specialist frailty practitioners. 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).
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.
In 2017 we moved into brand new purpose-designed premises rated as excellent by BREEAM . Explore the surgery here

We are a 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.
In the year to April 2019 we scored near-maximum points (542 points out of 545) on the NHS 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.
