The practice will be closed today from 1-5pm today for Staff Training. If you need help or advice during this time please call 111. Our reception team will be available from 5-6.30pm to answer queries.
The surgery will be observing the two-minute silence at 11am today. If you need to call the surgery we ask that you avoid this time if possible.
Along with Practices across Cheshire and Merseyside, Civic Medical Centre will be closed for Protected Learning Time (PLT) from 1-5pm on the following dates:
Wed 21st November 2019 – 1-5pm
Thurs 16th January 2020 – 1-5pm
Wed 18th March 2020 – 1-5pm
Wed 15th April 2020 – 1-5pm
Protected learning time allows practice staff the opportunity to come together in order to improve team working, as well as explore ways in which the practice can improve the quality of care that we provide to our patients.
During protected learning time closures, Out of Hours (OOH) will provide assistance for those patients who have a medical emergency that will not safely wait until we re-open at 5pm.

Did you know our surgery offers online services to patients through a number of different applications? These are myGP (https://www.mygp.com/), Patient Access (https://www.patientaccess.com), and the NHS App (https://www.nhs.uk/apps-library/nhs-app/).
Are you one of our patients? Would you like to join our virtual patient participation group? Email email@example.com with your details and we’ll get in touch.
Apple have launched a new version of their iOS which has a feature to “silence unknown callers”. If you use this feature on your phone and you’re expecting a telephone call from the surgery (such as a telephone consultation you have booked with a clinician) then we recommend turning this feature off temporarily.
Flu vaccinations are available every year on the NHS to help protect adults and children at risk of flu and its complications. Flu can be unpleasant, but if you’re otherwise healthy, it’ll usually clear up on its own within a week.
Flu can be more severe in certain people; including anyone aged 65 and over, pregnant women, children and adults with an underlying health condition (such as long-term heart or respiratory disease), and children/adults with weakened immune systems.
Anyone in these risk groups is more likely to develop potentially serious complications of flu, such as pneumonia (a lung infection), so it’s recommended that they have a flu vaccine every year to help protect them.
Our surgery has ordered enough flu vaccinations for all of our eligible patients. If you’re eligible and want to book an appointment to have this important vaccination (or want to check if you are eligible) then please call 0151 645 6936.
