Pharmacy & Self-Care

Pharmacy

We work closely with our neighbouring pharmacy, Faith Pharmacy. We are able to refer our patients to this service for minor ailments. This service is available Monday to Friday between 10am and 4pm. Please speak to one of our reception team, if you wish to access this service.

Pharmacists are qualified healthcare professionals who can offer clinical advice, over the counter medicines to effectively and safely manage a range of minor health concerns. They can also help you to decide whether you'll need to see a doctor. You don't need an appointment and you won't even be asked to make a purchase. Every pharmacy also has a private consultation area for you to talk about your symptoms in private if you prefer.

Home Visits

Please be aware that our GPs will always call to assess the home visit request first.

If you need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 11am.

Telephone: 0161 872 8129

Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible.

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls

You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby.

Referrals

We cannot issue referral passwords or change hospital appointments, all of these requests should go through Manchester Integrated Care Gateway (MICG) on 0161 947 0770.

Alternatively, you can find the correct contact details by using NHS My Planned Care.

If your doctor has referred you for further care or tests it can be quite confusing tracking down your appointment. Here are some steps to help you:

  1. ​If you have been referred to a hospital to see a consultant (such as an orthopaedic doctor for a bad knee)
    • All hospital referrals are sent to Manchester Integrated Care Gateway (MICG) which is a referral-handling hub.
    • They will contact you and arrange your appointment.
    • If you have been referred to the hospital by your GP and have not heard after 2 weeks from Manchester Integrated Care Gateway you should contact them on 0161 947 0770.
    • You can find out more information about them on their website.
  2. If you have been referred for an urgent suspected cancer referral also known as a 2-week wait appointment
    • This is also processed by Manchester Integrated Care Gateway however if you have not heard after 2 weeks you should contact our Practice Secretary, Augusta, on 0161 872 8129 who will investigate this for you.
    • Or contact the practice online
  3. If your doctor has referred you for an x-ray or scan
    • If you haven't heard from the provider carrying this out, you should contact our reception team on 0161 872 8129 who will inform you which provider your GP referred you to and give you the correct phone number to chase this up.
