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.

Teenage Health

Archwood Medical Practice has a wealth experience in dealing with all people of all ages, including our teenage patients. We also have access to other services that are available to young people, so if you have a problem that we are not able to deal with, we can put you in touch with someone that may be able to.

Confidentiality is treated in a highly professional manner so remember that anything you discuss with us remains confidential. You do not need to have an adult with you when you come to your appointment. If any matters do need to be discussed with anyone else or you need to be referred for specialist opinion this would be made very clear to you during your consultation.

We would like you to feel that you are welcome at the surgery and trust us to look after your health needs. If you would like some advice but do not want to book an appointment why don’t you ring and request a call-back from one of our clinicians.
