Welcome to Handforth Health Centre
Handforth Health Centre is a well-established Practice which has been operating in the Handforth area since 1974.
The building is divided into two - one-half provides GP consulting rooms, a treatment room, a minor operation suite and health screening clinics in Asthma, Diabetes, Hypertension, Heart Risk Management, immunisations, child development checks and dietetics, while the other half accommodates the Community staff (Midwives and District Nurses) as well as out-patient clinics and visiting Consultants.
COVID-19 Vaccinations. In accordance with Government Guidance we are working through our patient list to invite eligible patients for the vaccine, as and when they become available to us. We understand there is a rise in authentic looking but SCAM Covid-19 vaccination invitation texts and emails. Please refer to our NEWS page for more information on this.

NEW WEBSITE COMING SOON!We're looking forward to launching our new website within the next few weeks. We intend for it to be easier for our patients to navigate and mobile friendly as well as being compliant with national accessibility guidelines. We expect minimal disruption to the services we provide via our current website and we will keep you up to date with any additional information as and when we receive it.
The Practice has taken the decision to move towards a triage system so that patients have the ability to access the most appropriate service for their individual needs in the most efficient time. The new system is web-based and consists of an online form that you complete using your electronic device of choice e.g. mobile phone, IPad, home computer.We find the new system to be very user friendly as you simply click on the most appropriate tile and tell us what you need and why. We will do the rest and allocate the best placed person/department in the Practice to help you.
The intention being that we no longer have patients waiting for a lengthy amount of time at the 8am rush hour when appointments become available .
We want our patients to receive swift assistance by the best placed staff member in the Practice, be this the GP, Nurse, HCA, Prescriptions Clerk or Administrator and it is our belief that Klinik will help us achieve this.
