PRACTICE INFORMATION

Out of Hours
The practice should be your first point of contact when seeking medical advice or treatment.
To obtain help out of hours please phone the surgery number. Your call will be diverted to the emergency centre, Go To Doc, where a nurse will either offer advice, make an appointment for you to see a doctor at the centre or arrange for a doctor to visit you at home if you are seriously ill.

Telephone Advice

If you want to speak to the doctor on the telephone or just want some advice that doesn't require you coming in to the surgery, please ask for a telephone consultation. If you telephone before 10.00am your call will be returned the same morning.

Cancelling your Appointment

If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone to let us know on 0161 227 9785 (Boundary) or 0161 872 8129 (City Road).

Practice away day

Every year, we hold an away day for all of our practice staff.  This event gives us time out away from the surgery to think about the services we provide for our patients and what we can do to make things even better.  Our practice away day this year will be taking place on Wednesday 11th February.  Although none of our regular doctors and nurses will be available that day, we will have a locum doctor at both our Boundary and City Road sites to provide same day appointments for patients who need to be seen urgently.  Please help us by making sure that you get any requests for things like sick notes and repeat prescriptions to us by Monday 9th February.  Thanks!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

X-Ray

doctor examining an x-rayAn X-ray is a widely used diagnostic test to examine the inside of the body. X-rays are a very effective way of detecting problems with bones, such as fractures. They can also often identify problems with soft tissue, such as pneumonia or breast cancer.

If you have a X-ray, you will be asked to lie on a table or stand against a surface so that the part of your body being X-rayed is between the X-ray tube and the photographic plate.

An X-ray is usually carried out by a radiographer, a healthcare professional who specialises in using imaging technology, such as X-rays and ultrasound scanners.

You can find out more about x-ray tests, how they are performed, their function and the risks by visiting the NHS Choices website.
