We are currently open.
An appointment system is in operation for each surgery offering 10 minute appointments. Please try to consult with your usual doctor, if possible.
Although we book 10 minutes appointments not every problem can be dealt within this time slot, so there may be times when the GP and nurses surgeries run late. Please be patient – there may be times when your appointment takes longer than 10 minutes.
If you have been waiting a long time and think you may have been forgotten, go back to the front desk. The receptionist will let you know why the delay has occurred.
You may call in, telephone, use online access or send a message to make an appointment.
If you cannot keep an appointment, please let us know. Someone else is waiting for it.
The practice offers extended hours telephone consultations.
The South Manchester GP Federation (A collaboration between GP surgeries across South Manchester) provide an additional access service for routine appointments on week day evenings between 6pm & 8pm and Saturdays and Sundays 10am – 2pm.
For further information please ask at reception.
