OUT OF HOURS INFORMATION:

If you require urgent medical assistance that cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, please call 111 where you will be put through to the NHS 111 helpline who will be able to assist you further

NHS111 is a free to call, non-emergency, medical helpline operating in England.

The service is part of the country’s NHS telephone and triage and advisory services

 The Choose Well website is an excellent resource which includes details of services in the area, including local pharmacies and walk-in centres, and self-care information.  It provides a wealth of clear, clinically assured self-care information for patients, covering over 40 topics in 64 languages; each topic comes with a downloadable pdf leaflet to help you to self-care. www.choosewellmanchester.org.uk 

 We are now providing an electronic prescribing service.  If you nominate a preferred local pharmacy we can send your prescriptions directly to them electronically.  The advantage of this service is that you will not have to collect the prescription from the surgery, simply collect the medication from your pharmacy.  If you are interested, please go to your preferred pharmacy and they can arrange.

 

 PATIENT NHS CHECKS

 You may be entitled to an NHS Health Check please check with Reception.

This involves an appointment with the HCA who will record medical details, check height, weight, blood pressure and relevant blood tests.  She will then review your case following the results.

New Patient Registration

We welcome new patients to the practice. You will be required to complete a health questionnaire, registration form and provide proof of ID/address. The forms can be collected at reception.

The hours between 11:30 – 15:30 are the best times for this as it is when it is least busy.

In order to register as a patient with the practice, you must live within the practice catchment area, which is clearly outlined in the catchment area below.

Catchment Area

We do not accept any patients from outside this practice boundary. 

Ideally, you will also need to show some documents to prove your name, address and eligibility to receive NHS care. Acceptable documents are listed below. Exceptions will only be made for those without an address, such as those homeless or seeking asylum.

Acceptable evidence for proof of legal name (originals only):

  • birth certificate (if born in the UK);
  • passport;
  • UK photo card driving licence;
  • Home Office identity card.

Acceptable evidence for proof of address (originals only bearing the patient’s name and dated in the last three months and showing the address being registered):

  • statement from a financial institution (bank, building society, credit card or mortgage lender);
  • bill from a utility company (gas, electric, water or fixed line telephone provider);
  • council tax bill;
  • letter confirming entitlement to housing benefit, council tax benefit or tax credits;
  • letter from the Home Office in relation to an application for asylum or appeal;
  • letter from the educational establishment that you are currently attending.

Once registered, it is important to keep your contact details up to date in case we need to contact you. We occasionally need to change appointments or send letters to you and if you have moved and not told us this can cause problems. Any changes must be made in writing, and accompanied by a proof of address document as outlined above.
