About Us

The Practice was originally founded by Dr Molyneux in the 1930’s at No.60 Dinas Lane, Huyton. He was eventually joined by Dr Irving, then Dr Doyle, then Dr Knight, then Dr Ian Irving. The Practice eventually became too large for the premises, so a new purpose built surgery was opened in 1990 at 149

Dinas Lane

Dr Singh joined the Practice in 1975, Dr Darabshaw joined in 1987, Dr Pryce in 1991 and Dr Conway in 1995. Dr Adit Jain replaced Dr NP Singh as a Partner in October 2006 and Dr Breige Loughran joined us as a Salaried Doctor in August 2006. Dr Kirsty Poole joined as another Salaried Doctor in May 2007. With Dr Darabshaw’s retirement in 2010, Dr Loughran has been made a Partner.

We were approved as a Training Practice in June 2009, involved in helping to train the GPs of the future. Dr Jain is our Trainer.

Our Primary Care is developing as we identify need, we have a full compliment of clinical staff:-
