Appointments

To make an appointment, please:

Appointment Information

An appointment is for one person only. Emergencies can always be seen or spoken to on the same day.

If you find that our routine appointments have been filled, but you feel that you need to be seen because it is urgent, then the next step is to request an ‘emergency appointment.’

We hold a small number of appointments back each morning, from 08:30, and afternoon, from 13:00, to allow for these types of appointments. If you find these have been filled but you still feel that your problem requires urgent GP attention, you can opt to put your name down for telephone triage.

Telephone Triage

Telephone triage is an ‘on the day’ service that we have put in place to deal with any issues which are deemed to be necessary or urgent. It is not therefore to be utilised for routine consultations over the telephone. The GP may ask you to make another appointment if they do not feel it is urgent.

Telephone Advice

If you wish to speak to a doctor or nurse by telephone, the most convenient time to call is between 11:30 – 12:30.

Cancellations

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.

Evening & Weekend Appointments

Working in collaboration with Manchester Extended Access, we are pleased to offer access to GP, nurse and HCA appointments during the evenings and at the weekends.

To book appointments simply ask the receptionist who will arrange an appointment at a time and location that suits you best. This will not be at your usual practice, but the GP or Health Care Professional who sees you will have access to your medical record and can issue prescriptions if required and deal with other matters appropriately should the need arise.
