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.

Summary Care Record

Your Summary Care Record (SCR) is a copy of key information held in your GP record. It provides authorised healthcare staff with faster, secure access to essential information about you - when you need unplanned care or when your GP practice is closed.

Summary Care Records will assist healthcare staff who may be treating you now and in the future. This can improve your experience of care and also the safety and quality of that care. Your SCR already contains important information about any medicines you are taking, any allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines that you have previously experienced. You may want other details about your care to be added to your SCR - this is called additional information and could include for example, your long term health conditions, immunisations, your health care preferences.

If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you wish to opt-out, you will need to contact the practice to let us know.

You may want other details about your care to be added to your SCR - this is called additional information and could include for example, your long term health conditions, immunisations, your health care preferences.

Care.data

Care.data is a programme of work led by NHS England and the Health and Social Care Information Centre which will bring together securely, health and social care information from different settings in order to see what’s working really well in the NHS – and what can be done better. Using data in this way is known as data sharing for purposes beyond direct care, and the information will only be shared if it will benefit patient care.

Collecting and connecting information nationally will help to:

  • better understand diseases and develop drugs and treatments that can change lives
  • understand patterns and trends in public health and disease to ensure better quality care is available to everyone
  • plan services that make the best of limited NHS budgets for the health and wellbeing of everyone
  • monitor the safety of drugs and treatments
  • compare the quality of care provided in different areas of the country

GP-led clinical commissioning groups in four parts of the country, known as pathfinder areas, are helping to develop the care.data programme. The programme will be rolled out in participating GP practices in the CCG areas of Blackburn with Darwen, Somerset, West Hampshire and Leeds North, West and South and East. Pathfinder feedback will be used to refine materials for the national roll out.
