7 Day Appointments

There are 7 day appointments with GPs, Practice Nurses & Healthcare Assistants available in Stockport on Saturdays 09:00-15:00 and Sundays 09:00-13:00. Just call us on our usual number to ask to make a booking.


Our Doctors and Nurses try hard to run to time - please help them by limiting your consultation to one problem and book another slot if you need to. Please bear in mind when there is a delay it can be because someone is very distressed and needs compassion.....


What to do if you have a flu like illness

If you're otherwise fit and healthy, there's usually no need to see a doctor if you have flu-like symptoms.

The best remedy is to rest at home, keep warm and drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration. You can take paracetamol or ibuprofen to lower a high temperature and relieve aches if necessary.

Stay off work or school until you're feeling better. For most people, this will take about a week.

65+ Men 

A simple scan can tell you if you have an abdominal aortic aneurysm. Men aged 65+ are most at risk. Eligible patients will be invited to attend clinics from August 2016.

Men over the age of 65 who would like a scan can do so by ringing the AAA Screening Office on  0161 291 5716 and providing their NHS number.

Minor Eye Clinics

The Stockport Minor Eye Conditions' Service provides assessment and treatment for people with recently occurring minor eye conditions. The service is for people registered with a Stockport GP. It is for people of all ages -adults and children. Children under 16 years must be accompanied at their appointment by an adult. 

The service is provided by MECS accredited optometrists (also known as opticians) across Stockport who have specialist knowledge, training and skills. 

If you are unsure whether your symptoms can be assessed and treated by the service, please contact one of the participating optometry practices who will advise you. 

NOTE: If you have an eye condition that is being regularly monitored by your optometrist or hospital eye service, this will not be covered by MECS; for example cataracts, diabetic retinopathy or glaucoma. 

To book an appointment, telephone an approved optometrist directly (self-refer). On contacting the optometry practice, you will be asked some questions about your symptoms in order to assess how quickly you need to be seen by the service.

Depending on your symptoms, you will be seen within 24 hours or 5 working days.
