This service is available Monday to Friday between the hours of 8.00am and 9.00am. Outside of these hours please contact the Surgery directly.

Seeing the Doctor may not always be necessary. Please check the Practice Team and their roles to see who can deal with your questions best.

Your appointment

When you request an appointment our Reception Team will ask you to confirm the reason for the appointment in order to navigate you to the correct appointment. For instance, if you have a musculoskeletal problem it may be more appropriate to see the First Contact Practitioner instead of the GP. Also certain appointments require longer appointments e.g. a cervical smear with the Practice Nurse requires a 20 minute appointment and an appointment to receive your B12 injection requires a 10 minute appointment. Our Reception Team are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the Clinicians.

Please note for any form of dental care please contact a Dentist, as we do not see or treat any form of dental or gum problem. If you need an emergency dentist please contact the Cheshire & Merseyside Urgent Dental Helpline on 0161 476 9651 (open every day including weekends and bank holidays 9.00am – 9.30pm)

If you need help with your appointment

Please inform the practice if:

  • If you would prefer to consult with the Clinician face to face or via a telephone consultation
  • If you need an Interpreter
  • If you have any other access or communication needs

First Contact Practitioners

We are fortunate to be supported by two First Contact Practitioners, these are our Advanced Musculoskeletal Practitioners –Nathan Owen (Tuesdays) and Anthony Williams (Wednesdays). Previously you would require an appointment with the GP prior to being referred to see our Specialist Musculoskeletal Practitioners.

We are delighted that we now have Nathan and Tony working within the Practice Team enabling you to access this service directly on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. These Clinicians aim to diagnose the cause of your symptoms, arrange investigations if required, give expert advice of how to manage your symptoms and refer onwards if required.

Social Prescriber

Our Social Prescriber deals with the non-medical side of your overall wellbeing needs.

You might want to find specific support groups, local societies, volunteering opportunities or befriending services. You might need support as a carer or with building the confidence to take the first steps in accessing support.

You might have needs relating to housing, employment or finances or be feeling isolated and lonely.

A Social Prescriber can listen and find the right support for you.

Extended Hours Appointments

Our Clinical Team offer a range of appointments from 7.30am and after 6.30pm, you can select these when booking online and you can also request this if you contact the Practice by telephone.

Home Visits

Our Home Visiting Teams are very busy and we ask for your co-operation in attending surgery whenever possible.

If you are too unwell or too immobile to attend, please telephone 01270 780210 before 10:00 Monday to Friday as this assists in the planning of visits.

It is helpful if you can give the Receptionist an indication of the problem so that the Doctor can prioritise the urgency of the request. Please always ensure there is a contact telephone number in case the Doctor wishes to speak with you prior to the visit.

Patients recently discharged from hospital, who need nursing follow up, will routinely be seen by the District Nursing team.
