Currently all appointments with the Doctor are telephone appointments and the Doctor will access whether you need to be seen face to face or not
Each day we offer urgent appointments for conditions that will not wait until the next routine appointment.
These appointments will not necessarily be with the Doctor of your choice or a Doctor of the sex of your choice.
Each day we also offer book on the day appointments and these can be booked each morning when you ring at 8:00am.
Booking appointments in advance is available but not encouraged by the practice due to the increase of non-attended appointments.
Please be aware reception staff will be required to obtain a reason for any appointment to ensure the most appropriate service is accessed.
Cancellations & Non-Attendance -
We have a high number of appointments that are not cancelled by the patients which costs the NHS a lot of money. Please can you inform the practice as soon as possible if you are unable to attend your appointment on 0161 277 6939. We have a policy of three DNA's and then you are removed from the practice list and will not be allowed to register again. Please speak to reception if you have any questions.
