Appointments are available at the following times:
- Weekdays 6.30pm - 9.00pm
- Saturdays and bank holidays 8.00am - 6.00pm
- Sundays 10.00am - 1.00pm
The appointments are available at four GP ‘hubs’ across the borough, currently located at:

You will probably not get to see your own doctor during these hours but the GP or Nurse you do see will have access to your medical record, subject to your consent.
The service has been introduced to give you more flexibility in where, when and how you use local health services. It is designed to help those who find it hard to get to the doctors during the week, perhaps because of work and family commitments.
If you would like to book an appointment please contact call the central booking line on 0161 763 8292.

What should I do if I fall ill when I’m away from home?
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can ask to be registered as a temporary patient at a nearby GP practice for up to three months. This process allows you to make use of a local practice but still remain a patient of your permanent GP practice at home. However, after three months, if you still wish to access this practice you will be required to permanently register.
If you wish to register with us as a temporary patient simply contact the practice directly.
