Covid-19 Booster

Further to the PM’s recent announcement, we are now able to offer booster doses to eligible patients here at the practice. 

We must however follow government guidelines and vaccinate the most vulnerable first.  Invitations will be sent out to the most the most vulnerable. 

Please be patient and do not contact the surgery unless you have received an invitation to book an appointment.

COVID-19 Booster Vaccine: The COVID-19 booster vaccine dose, which is available three months after the second dose, helps improve the protection you have from your first two doses of the vaccine. It helps give you longer-term protection against getting seriously ill from COVID-19. Find out more about the COVID-19 booster vaccine and who can get it.

If you don’t want to wait for us to contact you, visit the National Booking Service website or call the National Booking Service on 119, seven days a week, between 7am and 11pm. You can also look for a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination site convenient to you.

Appointmentsappointment_1

Appointments can be made by telephone on 0161 480 2882 or in person at reception and can be booked up to four weeks in advance. Patients are normally able to see a GP for non-urgent matters within two working days.

*Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are firstly triaging all appointments via telephone/video calls to see if queries can be dealt with without coming into the surgery. This is to protect both you and the practice staff.

*Please note - we are still holding face-to-face GP and Nursing appointments*

Urgent cases are seen on the day.  To assist us with our allocation of appointments please call to request an emergency appointment before 10:00 if possible.

Practice Nurses

In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. One of our practice nurses hols a minor illness clinic on Thursday mornings. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many ailments and you may be seen more quickly.

Cancellations

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
