We continue to see patients at the Health Centre, but all requests will be via telephone appointment with a GP or nurse. Patients will then be offered a face to face appointment if required. 

If you have an urgent medical need please telephone the Health Centre on 01477 533100 and choose option 2. You will be offered a telephone appointment on the day with a clinician who will decide what action needs to be taken. We are not taking any advance bookings.

Continuity of care is important - if your problem is not urgent and your usual doctor is unavailable or fully booked on the day you request an appointment, please try to wait until they are available.

When We Are Closed

Medical care outside of the Health Centre's opening hours is available from the NHS Eastern Cheshire GP Out of Hours Service.  The GP Out of Hours Service can be accessed via NHS 111.

Please telephone NHS 111 (dial 111) where you will be given advice about your problem or you will be directed to an appropriate service that can help you.  If you need to see a GP outside of the Health Centre's opening hours you may be asked to attend a Primary Care Centre at Macclesfield, Knutsford, Crewe, Northwich, Congleton or Handforth.  Out of hours home visits by a GP will be arranged by this GP out of hours service where appropriate. 

Please do not ask to see a GP out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the Health Centre re-opens.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

NHS 111 Online

111 online is a fast and convenient alternative to the 111 phone service and provides an option for people who want to access 111 digitally. 

Your needs will be assessed and you will be given advice about whether you need:

  • Treat yourself at home
  • Go to a Primary Care Centre

If you need face to face medical attention you may be asked to attend a Primary Care Centre.

Click here to access NHS 111 online or call 111 to speak to a staff member.

Training Afternoon Closures

It is very important that our team have the opportunity to meet together for training purposes. The practice will therefore be closed for staff training on the following afternoons between 13:00 – 17:00:


Wednesday 16th February
Thursday 17th March

During these planned closures any urgent phone calls will be dealt with by NHS 111 and patients requiring emergency care should phone 999 as at any other time. The surgery will re-open at 17:00.
