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.

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

The Practice is only able to provide NHS vaccinations recommended for travel. This is a limited range of travel vaccinations (where these are indicated only) which includes Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Diphtheria*, Tetanus* and Polio* (*may be combined)

We do not provide advice as to which other vaccinations you may require for overseas travel including to areas of higher risk.

For information and advice about what protection you should have for the area you are travelling to you can go to one of the following websites or contact a local travel clinic:


NHS Fit For Travel

The Medical Advisory Services for Travellers Abroad (MASTA)*

The National Travel health Network and Centre

If you require vaccinations other than those offered by the NHS, you will need to arrange to have these administered privately.

If you require NHS vaccinations, before booking in to see the nurse, the receptionist will ask you to complete a questionnaire about where you are going, what advice you have sought and where you will have any vaccinations not listed. If the next available nurse appointment is not soon enough for your travel needs then you will need to pay for these injections at a Travel Clinic.
