Coronavirus – COVID-19- update

All requests for appointments/advice are by telephone appointment only.  Please contact the surgery on 0161 773 2483 to speak to our reception team and they will arrange this for you. We are open our usual hours. Please note, our staff are working under extreme pressure at present so please bear with us at this difficult time if you find it difficult to get through to the surgery.

Due to the current situation and in order to protect staff and patients alike, please do not come to the surgery unless you have already spoken to a doctor or nurse and been offered an appointment.  If you need to order a repeat prescription during the Coronavirus outbreak, you can order online or by phone.  You should nominate your preferred pharmacy so that your prescription can be sent electronically to them for you to collect when ready.  Please note that you should ideally allow one week for your repeat prescription because of the current demand on both the pharmacies and your GP practice.

If you may have been exposed to coronavirus DO NOT ATTEND your GP or hospital emergency department, please visit https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 for further advice, or call NHS 111.

Online booking of face to face appointments has been suspended for the foreseeable future to ensure that patients are triaged to the right service and no-one is put at risk of Coronavirus.

If you have any other queries/concerns, please contact the surgery for advice.
