Doctors

Our doctors work in a partnership and as a group. Although you are registered with a named doctor, you may see any of the doctors in the partnership. However, we encourage you to remain with one GP for routine appointments to improve continuity.

GP Registrars

Helsby Street Medical Centre is a training practice for General Practitioner Registrars and doctors in training. These are fully trained doctors with a wealth of hospital experience who are being trained for the Primary Care setting.

Training may involve shared surgeries with another doctor and video surgeries. The reception staff will inform you if the consultations are being filmed. Please say if you would prefer not to be filmed.

Our current trainees are

Dr J Alpert
Dr S Gauhar
Dr A Hartley
Dr K Kelly

Other allied professionals and students may on occasion be sitting in with the doctor or nurse. Please say if you would like them to leave.

Thank you for your assistance.

Practice Manager

Mrs Sonya Pimblett

Our Practice Manager, along with the Doctors, is responsible for the development of the Practice for the benefit of our patients. She is also responsible for staff management, dealing with general enquiries and complaints. 

Receptionists

The receptionists deal with enquiries, appointments and general administration. If they are unable to respond to your enquiry immediately relevant details will be recorded on the computer system, and the duty doctor will respond as appropriate. In this case you will be asked to contact the surgery later in the day when the doctor's comments can be passed on.
