🎄 Christmas Opening Hours 🎄

Our practice will close for the Christmas period on Friday 22nd December at 6:30pm and will remain closed until Wednesday 27th December at 8am.

We will close for the New Year bank holiday on Friday 29th December at 6:30pm and re-open on Tuesday 2nd January at 8am.

💊 If you need to visit a pharmacy over the Bank Holiday weekend,  here is a link where you will find a pharmacy local to you:

👩‍⚕️🩺 You may need to see a GP while we are closed – there is an out of hours service that will arrange for you to see a GP where necessary.

You can access this service by calling NHS111 – just simply dial 111 from any phone 📞

or go online 💻 to https://gbr01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2F111.nhs.uk%2F&data=05%7C02%7Cm.jennison%40nhs.net%7C874ed5dc004649d1da0808dbfbc33295%7C37c354b285b047f5b22207b48d774ee3%7C0%7C0%7C638380588002825230%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000%7C%7C%7C&sdata=R7c4ep5Hius7vFemomexUvp6VGWsTuu%2B5146cjz8T3c%3D&reserved=0

There is also an urgent treatment centre located next door to Manchester Royal Infirmary.

If you are unwell over the Christmas / New Year period, please do not wait until we are open, seek help when you need it.

**PLEASE DO NOT DELAY ACCESSING MEDICAL TREATMENT IF YOU NEED IT**

A&E is for accidents and serious medical emergencies. Please do not attend A&E if your issue is not of a serious medical nature. Please call 111 instead.  We expect our A&E colleagues to be exceptionally busy over the Easter break, please do not add to their workload unless it is appropriate.

When we re-open after our period of closure we will be extremely busy and appointments are not unlimited.  Taking this into consideration, your medical problem will be care navigated by our trained reception team, and the appointment which you receive may not necessarily need to be with a GP.

The most efficient way to secure a GP appointment is via the NHS app. If you have not done so already, please download it now as you will be able to book appointments, order medication and manage your health needs through the app.  We give out appointments through the NHS app every weekday at 8am and 6 days in advance at 12pm.

For those who celebrate Christmas, we would like to wish you a wonderful time.

The Practice Management Team.
