When We Are Closed
If you need to see a doctor urgently when the surgery is closed please phone 0161 763 4242 and follow the instructions. You will be put through to BARDOC who provides the ‘out-of-hours’ service. They will pass a message to the doctor on duty who may phone you to assess your problem. You might be asked to attend the out-of-hours clinic, or receive a home visit.
The nearest NHS walk-in centre is located at Prestwich. NHS walk-in centres provide advice and treatment for a range of minor illnesses and injuries.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
