When We Are Closed
If you require emergency assistance when the surgery is closed please ring 0161 766 6622. The answer phone message will tell you what to do in the event of needing a GP in an emergency. This service is for urgent medical problems that cannot wait until the surgery is next open.
Our practice provides an ‘on call’ service for patients and also is part of the Bury and Rochdale Doctors on Call group (BARDOC), who also see patients on our behalf.
The practice pays for each patient who sees or receives telephone advice from BARDOC. We respectfully request that you only access this service as described above in an emergency or when a condition will not wait until the surgery is next open.
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.
