Appointments with a doctor

If you wish to speak to a doctor, you will be able to book either a telephone or a face to face appointment.  These appointments will become available from 8am Monday to Friday and can be booked by telephone, online or by calling into the surgery.  Whilst the majority of appointments are bookable on the day, there are a small number that may be booked up to a month in advance. 

Do I need to call early?

Yes - the Doctors' lists can get booked up when very busy.  After this time it is the Duty Doctor who deals with emergencies only (this is when the lists are full or from 1.30pm onwards).

 

How does this help patients?

  • It cuts down the wait to see a doctor

  • It avoids wasted time coming in to the surgery when you don’t need to.

How can I book the appointments online?

To access appointments online, you will need to register for online services.  Click here  for further information and please ask at reception for an application form for password details.

If you already have access, your registration will need to be checked to ensure this allows you to book appointments on line – please ask at reception.

How can I speak to a doctor when the surgery is closed?

The out of hours service is now provided by NHS 111.  This means when the surgery is closed you will need to telephone 111 for assistance.  This number is free of charge.

Due to the heavy demand for GP appointments, we kindly ask that you contact the surgery after 11am for test results and all other inquiries. 

 

Thank you for your cooperation.

Manchester GP surgeries are there for you at evenings and weekends

The practice, working in collaboration with Manchester Extended Access, is 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 may 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.
