When We Are Closed

The surgery is open from 8.00 am until 6.30 pm Monday to Friday.  We are closed all day Saturday and Sunday and all bank holidays.

Routine appointments for both GPs and Nurses are available at the Urgent Treatment Centre at Royal Bolton Hospital, Waters Meeting Health Centre and Winifred Kettle in Westhoughton on evenings, weekends and Bank Holidays.  These appointments can be booked via the GP Practice.

If you require urgent medical attention or advice outside normal surgery hours please call 0161 763 8940.  

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

Call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergencyNHS ChoicesThis site is brought to you by My Surgery Website
