Cavendish Medical Centre is an NHS medical general practice situated in the community of Birkenhead on Laird Street.

The practice is very convenient and easy to access via public transport, with car and cycle parking facilities. Our practice list is open to new patients wishing to register.



The aim of our practice is to provide high quality care to all our patients, treating you with dignity and respect.

We wish to help you to improve your health and are committed to work with you to achieve this in a friendly, caring and accessible way.




We are an up to date, modern training practice with two doctors who are qualified General Practitioner Trainers (Dr Cheetham & Dr Clark).

We have a practice-wide learning and communicating ethos and this enables the entire practice team to maintain their knowledge and to develop a wide range of skills.

We facilitate training of qualified doctors who wish to specialise in general practice (GP Trainees) We call these doctors in training “Registrars”.

We provide training for hospital doctors who need to gain experience in general practice before choosing their future career path (Foundation doctors from local hospitals in Wirral and Liverpool).

We also provide experience for medical students from the Liverpool University.

We are pleased to have established an excellent record for training future GPs and to have contributed to the success of Wirral as the top north west GP Training area according to  the 2017 GMC survey. We aim to provide a welcoming and high quality experience for our trainees.

Our reception team train NVQ apprentices up to Level 5.

Our nurses provide mentorship and work experience for some types of student.
