7 Day Appointments

There are 7 day appointments with GPs, Practice Nurses & Healthcare Assistants available in Stockport on Saturdays 09:00-15:00 and Sundays 09:00-13:00. Just call us on our usual number to ask to make a booking.


Our Doctors and Nurses try hard to run to time - please help them by limiting your consultation to one problem and book another slot if you need to. Please bear in mind when there is a delay it can be because someone is very distressed and needs compassion.....


What to do if you have a flu like illness

If you're otherwise fit and healthy, there's usually no need to see a doctor if you have flu-like symptoms.

The best remedy is to rest at home, keep warm and drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration. You can take paracetamol or ibuprofen to lower a high temperature and relieve aches if necessary.

Stay off work or school until you're feeling better. For most people, this will take about a week.

65+ Men 

A simple scan can tell you if you have an abdominal aortic aneurysm. Men aged 65+ are most at risk. Eligible patients will be invited to attend clinics from August 2016.

Men over the age of 65 who would like a scan can do so by ringing the AAA Screening Office on  0161 291 5716 and providing their NHS number.

Wound care

The nurse will assess your wounds, treat them appropriately, and provide you with the necessary dressings. The nurse will refer you to other services when needed. In the case of lower leg injuries which are slow to heal this will involve referral to the leg ulcer service.

Ear Care

Stockport does not offer routine ear irrigation for the removal of ear wax. If ear wax is causing you to have hearing loss you should use ear drops to soften the wax for three weeks. Your pharmacist will recommend suitable drops. You can also pick up the leaflet ‘Caring for Your Ears’ from your GP surgery or local clinic.

If hearing is still affected after three weeks of using drops you may need to have your ears irrigated by a treatment room nurse. The nurse will make an assessment and advise you of the best course of action.

Minor Injuries

Emergency first aid is not available if you have experienced an animal bite, have fallen and injured yourself, have splinters or other foreign bodies which need removing.

Appointments

Please arrive in good time for your appointment and be sure to inform us if you find that you can’t attend.

Home Visits

District Nurse care to patients at home is normally at the request of the doctor or hospital.
