AFTER THE 19TH JULY 2021 – FACE COVERINGS TO STILL BE WORN INSIDE THE BUILDING

  • COVID-19 is still with us, and the safety of NHS patients, visitors and staff is our top priority.
  • In line with Government guidance, everyone accessing or visiting healthcare settings must continue to wear a face covering, unless they are exempt, and follow social distancing rules.
  • This applies to all health services including hospitals, GP practices, dentists, optometrists and pharmacies, to ensure patients and staff are protected.
  • NHS teams will continue to take other infection prevention and control measures to minimise the risk of transmission of COVID-19 and other infections in health and care settings

See Infection Control Guidance and NHS national media release 

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how we delivery our services has radically changed.  We now operate a ‘total triage’ system, this means that you can submit your request via our website or telephone.  Details of your medical need will be asked by our medical staff and then your request will be directed to the most appropriate person, this could be your local pharmacist or other external healthcare professionals.  Your enquiry will be dealt with on the SAME DAY , we do not offer pre-bookable GP appointments. We DO offer face to face appointments after the initial triage is complete and if a physical examination is required.

The Practice is open as normal and if you need to see your GP, please send us a Online Patient Triage request or if you do not have IT technology or a Smartphone then please telephone 0161 983 5333 to arrange an initial telephone appointment. If through mutual agreement you and the clinician decide that you do need to come into the practice, this face to face appointment will be made for you.

Please do not come to the surgery unless you have an appointment.
