When We Are Closed
There is always a doctor on call outside surgery hours in case of emergency. If you need a doctor urgently when the surgery is closed, please call 111 and you will be connected to our out-of-hours provider, NHS 111 who will be able to assist you further.
• NHS 111 is a free-to-call, non-emergency, medical helpline operating in England. The service is part of the country's NHS telephone triage and advice services.
• Available 24 hours-a-day, the NHS 111 Service is intended for 'urgent but not life-threatening' health issues.
• Provided nationwide, you are able to pick up the phone at any location in England and Scotland and ring 111 and receive the same level of care.
• The service is available for urgent healthcare assessment and you will be directed to the most suitable local service for your needs. If you are unsure which healthcare service you need to visit, the NHS 111 service will signpost you to the most appropriate care for your condition, for example, GP, local pharmacy, Walk-in-Centre, community-based services, A&E or an emergency ambulance response.
Treatment is also available at the walk-in centre at Hawthorn Medical Centre or Manchester Royal Infirmary A&E.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
