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.

Test Results

You will be contacted by the surgery if the doctor has any concerns about your test results.

We do not contact patients when results are normal.

Results can take differing lengths of time to come back depending on the test. When you take your test you will be told how long it is likely to be before the results are returned to the practice.

If you want to contact the surgery about your results, please call after 2pm, at least one week after your test.  

This allows time for the results to be returned to the practice and for the doctor to review them and add comments. We ask patients to call after 2pm to help keep the telephones line clear during peak times to allow people to get through to book appointments.

We have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. We are only able to release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data.

Patients should note that reception staff are not qualified to interpret test results and can only relay the result and any comment made by the doctor. Patients may need to speak to a doctor or nurse if they need further information.
