Welcome to Ferguson Family Medical Practice

We are a long-established St Helens practice that has been providing a dedicated, professional and personal service to our patients for more than forty years. We take our name from Dr Peter Ferguson, who retired in 1996 after 35 years with the practice.

We practice from two sites – Berrymead Family Medical Centre, Parr (next to St Cuthbert’s School) and Halefield Family Medical Centre, in the town centre (near Lowe House Church). All the doctors and nurses work at both sites.

With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.

Get Well, Keep Well

Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.

We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
