This is the official Web Site of The Health Centre Surgery, the General Medical Practice of Dr Carmen Simo and Dr Manoj Wijesinghe.

The Health Centre Surgery has been providing NHS based General Practice in Halewood, a socioeconomically mixed suburban area of Knowsley, bordering into Liverpool, since 1972.

Dr Simo and Dr Wijesinghe are also assisted by Dr Matthew Cullen and Practice Nurse, Julie Daly and will be joined by a further GP, Dr Christine McGovern, in March 2020.

More details about our clinical staff can be found here

When the Practice moved from the old Halewood Health Centre (now under the car park!) to the modern purpose built combined resource centre integrating Health and Social Services, The Halewood Centre, in January 2009 it kept its official name, The Health Centre Surgery, to avoid confusion within the NHS.
