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.

New Patient Registration

The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. Click here to see if you are in the practice's catchment area (you will need to know your postcode).

To register there are two forms to complete – the GMS 1 Form and a Medical Questionnaire. The information in the GSM 1 form helps quickly trace your medical records and request your records are sent to the practice. We also ask you to fill out a medical questionnaire because it can take time for us to receive your medical records.

Please download and complete the forms below and bring them to the surgery.

To register children under the age of 16, one or more parent/legal guardian must be registered with the Practice.

If you are on regular medication then please attach a list of this to your form.

We will process your registration request usually within 3 working days. Once registered we will ask you to make an appointment with our Healthcare Assistant for a new patient check and if necessary with the doctor for a medication review.
