7-Day access service

There is now a 7-day access service, which is free for patients to access.  This service offersGP, Nurse or Healthcare Assistant appointments at 5 locations each evening through the week, and at weekends.  These appointments are available at:

Ashton Primary Care Centre, Ashton-under-Lyne

St Andrews House, Stalybridge

Thornley House Medical Centre, Hyde

Glossop Primary Care Centre, Gossop

Ann St Health Centre, Denton

These appointments MUST be booked by your GP surgery.  They are available from 6.30pm - 9.00pm Monday to Friday, and at various times on Saturday and Sunday. These appointments are designed to assist people who may struggle to visit their GP surgery during normal working hours.

As well as GP appointments, the service also offers appointments for blood tests, ear syringing, cervical screening, asthma checks, diabetic checks etc.  Again, these MUST be booked through your GP surgery.

Please call us on 0161 303 4313 and ask to book a 7 day access appointment. Please note, you will be asked for your consent for the 7 day access service to have access to your past medical history.  This is to ensure they give you the correct advice and treatment.  It also allows them to put a consultation on your records, to enable us to see what service they have provided, and for us to offer any continuation to that care that may be necessary (for example, blood tests).

Please note: these appointments will not be with your regular GP, but with a GP who is covering that particular clinic on that particular day.
