** IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT**

Sadly, on Monday 2nd September we lost a much loved member of our reception team, Marie Smith.  On Friday 13 September all staff will be attending the funeral and as a result the surgery doors will be closed from 11.00 - 2.30 and our telephone lines will be closed from 11.00 - 6.30pm. The telephone lines will re-open on Monday 16 September at 8.00am.  If you contact the surgery after 11.00am your call will be passed through to Mastercall for triage.  We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your consideration at this very sad time.

Please call 111 if you have a medical need that will not wait until the surgery re-opens.  Calls to NHS111 are free of charge.  Please dial 999 if you have a medical emergency.

URGENT ON THE DAY APPOINTMENTS

From Tuesday 15 January if you require an urgent on the day appointment please contact us on 0161 748 5559 from 8.00am.  We no longer hold the urgent walk in service.

TRAFFORD BLOOD SERVICE CHANGE

It is no longer possible to turn up to any of the blood rooms within Trafford.  This is now a bookable service.  Once you have collected your blood form from the surgery contact 0161 934 8361 to book your blood room appointment.

 

How we communicate with our patients

You may have noticed that we are encouraging you to let us have your up to date mobile number.  This is to facilitate you receiving automatic text messages reminding you of your appointments.  We are able to then also contact you via (our free) text messaging service.   For us, it is a quick and cost-effective way of communicating information to large groups of patients and is therefore, a good use of our staff and financial resources.  If, however, you prefer not to be contacted by text message, please let reception know and we will opt you out of this service.  Please note, however, that you will not then receive appointment reminders and will not be advised about any health campaigns or other services we may provide.
