Opening Times and Out of Hours

Opening Hours

The surgery is accessible directly, and by phone: Monday and Tuesday 7am-6pm, Wednesday and Friday 8am-6pm and Thursday 8am-12.30pm

Surgery Hours

A variety of surgeries are offered throughout the week.

This includes a daily morning surgery 8:30am – 11:30am, and evening surgery 3:30pm – 5:30pm every day except Thursday. On Wednesdays and Friday we also offer an early afternoon surgery. We also offer an ‘earlybird’ surgery 7am – 8am on Mondays and Tuesdays. These will consist of pre-booked appointments only, catering for patients who work or are in full time education and find it difficult to attend at any other time.

When the surgery is closed and you require medical attention, please telephone out of hours emergency cover on 0161 336 3252. You will be able to speak to a triage nurse, who will provide you with information and where necessary an appointment to see a doctor.

Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens

In the case of urgent medical advice you can contact NHS Service 111. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.

Walk in Centre

If the surgery is closed and you are suffering with a minor injury/ailment, rather than attend Accident & Emergency, you can attend Ashton Primary Care Centre, where you will be seen by a Nurse Practitioner or Doctor without an appointment.

Ashton Primary Care Centre is open Monday - Sunday 8am-8pm: Ashton Primary Care Centre, 193 Old St, Ashton-Under-Lyne OL6 7SR Tel No. 0161 342 7000

Please do not use Accident & Emergency unless your condition is critical or life threatning.

Pharmacists

You can visit or contact your local pharmacy, where you can be given advice for common illnesses and the best medicine to treat them.

Please note all reports of contact with patients during out of hours services are faxed to the surgery the next day so that we can update patients records.
