To utilise the telephone consultation service, you must phone the surgery during opening hours, Monday-Friday. Face to face appointments can be arranged if deemed appropriate.

In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse or Clinical Pharmacist rather than a doctor. They are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly.

Telephone Advice

Should you need to speak to a clinician via the telephone please call reception on 0161 740 2106. The receptionist may ask you some questions in order to assist the clinician. 

Alternative Options to Access Healthcare

Once you have provided the reason for your appointment, the receptionist can help signpost you to the most appropriate service. Other options that may be available are:

  • Extended Access appointments in the local Hub including evening and weekends
  • Community Pharmacy Consultation Service (CPCS) for minor ailments
  • Online Consultations via the surgery website (home page)
  • Direct booking for Physio appointments
  • Referral to the Social Prescribing Services 

Training Practice

We are a training practice. Occasionally there may be a student doctor in the surgery; please let us know if you would prefer to be seen without the student present.


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.
