When We Are Closed
For problems which cannot wait until the next surgery then please telephone the surgery number. Your call will be answered by Salford Unscheduled Care Service.
Depending on the illness a doctor/nurse will call you back and offer you advice over the telephone or ask you to attend the out-of-hours service based at Hope Hospital.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
On the last Wednesday of every month both practices will closed for staff training.
From 12:00 the phones will be switched over to an emergency line for patients who have an emergency need where they will be triage by the on-call doctor.
