Welcome to Rutherford Medical Centre's website.

The aim of the website is to give the local community information about the services that the practice offers and the members of the practice who strive to bring you those services. The website brings together a comprehensive list of services offered by the practice with times and booking information.

All registered patients at Rutherford Medical Centre have a named GP - ask at reception. A named GP will be responsible for the co-ordination of appropriate services where required.



Our Mission Statement

Treat Patients as individuals, with respect and courtesy at all times, with no discrimination of race, gender, social class, religion, sexual orientation or appearance.

Provide patient centred services in a safe and caring environment.

Strive to meet patient expectation and deliver a high standard of care.

Maintain confidentiality in what we discuss and the records we keep on patients’ behalf.

Keep up to date with developments in health care by continuing to learn and maintain the standards required.

Consider the needs and opinions of patients when planning changes or the introduction of new services.

We now offer appointments out of normal working hours from 6.45 – 8 every Wednesday morning, call the surgery or book online.

From 1 October 2018 patients in Liverpool will be able to access routine GP appointments during evenings and weekends.

These additional GP appointments will be bookable through the city's 88 GP practices, and will offer patients greater flexibility and choice about when they can access primary care services.

To make an appointment through the GP Extended Access Service, patients call their usual GP practice. If the practice can't offer a suitable appointment they will offer to arrange a telephone conversation with a GP from the extended access service, who will offer advice over the phone, or arrange a face to face appointment, if required.

Face to face appointments will be available Monday to Friday between 4.00pm and 9.00pm; Saturdays between 9.00am and 4.00pm, and Sundays between 9.00am and 1.00pm.

Appointments will take place at a number of locations around the city, rather than at the patient's usual GP surgery. However, people who would rather see their own GP at their usual practice will still be able to book an appointment in the way they do now, within their practice's normal opening hours.

This GP Extended Access Service GP is being rolled out across the country as part of a national initiative from NHS England, and in Liverpool the service is being delivered by Urgent Care 24, Liverpool's GP out-of-hours service.



Rutherford Medical Centre welcomed a team of four inspectors from CQC in October 2015 and we are proud to announce that we achieved GOOD in all areas on our first CQC Inspection.

Summary Care Record – your emergency care summary

The NHS in England is introducing the Summary Care Record, which will be used in emergency care.

The record will contain information about any medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had to ensure those caring for you have enough information to treat you safely.

Your Summary Care Record will be available to authorised healthcare staff providing your care anywhere in England, but they will ask your permission before they look at it. This means that if you have an accident or become ill, healthcare staff treating you will have immediate access to important information about your health.

What are my choices?

• You can choose to have a Summary Care Record:

You do not need to do anything. This will happen automatically.

• You can choose not to have a Summary Care Record:

You need to let your GP practice know by filling in and returning an opt-out form.
