Did you know you can now book to see a GP in Tameside at evenings and weekend? There will be additional appointments available 6.30pm-8.00pm weekdays and 9am - 12pm weekends. Appointments must be booked in advance. Please speak to the receptionist to book an appointment or for more information.

Patient Participation Group

We now run a Patient Participation Group at the Practice.

If you have time to give and would be interested in the involvement of improving our Services, then we would like to hear from you.

Please leave your details with one of our receptionists and we will get back to you in due course.

If you would like further information, please contact the surgery and speak to the manager Stacy Macleod or our PPG lead Samantha Fagan.

Appointments

Appointments can be made at the surgery or by telephoning reception after 08:00 on the day you want to be seen. Some morning and afternoon appointments are pre-bookable, one week in advance. Please inform us if you are unable to keep your appointment, so that the time can be allocated to another patient. 

One appointment is for one patient only. Sometimes doctors’ appointments run late. This is often because they have to see another patient urgently. Emergency cases will be seen the same day. You may have to wait in the surgery and may not be able to see the doctor of your choice.

Speak to a Doctor or Nurse

If you feel your problem could be dealt with via a telephone consultation, please ring after 08:00 and inform reception. A doctor or nurse will then phone you back. Examples of subjects suitable for telephone consultation include minor ailments, medication requests that are not on your usual repeats, follow up consultations for long-term problems e.g. depression, and to discuss results of tests.

Chaperones

During your appointment with a doctor or nurse, you are welcome to ask for a chaperone. This will usually be one of the nursing team, however if a nurse is unavailable another staff member can chaperone with your agreement.

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.

Patients who repeatedly do not attend without cancellation will be asked to come into the surgery to discuss any problems, and may ultimately be asked to leave the list, as ‘DNA’s (Did Not Attend’s) affect the service we offer to our patients.
