GP Additional Access Services

Would you like an appointment with a GP, Nurse, or Health Care Practitioner in the evening or at the weekend when we are closed?

If so, you can book your appointment now by contacting us.

Access Services are an extension of our usual service, it is not a walk-in service, and you will need to make an appointment through the practice reception. The service gives you more flexibility in where, when and how you use local health services. It helps those who struggle to get to the doctors during the week because of work and family commitments.

Please note that whilst you may not get to see your own doctor during these hours, and it may not be at your own practice location, the GP or Nurse you see will have access to your medical record, subject to your consent.

APPOINTMENTS ARE AVAILABLE:

Monday to Friday - Daytime & Evenings
Saturday and Sunday - Daytime
Bank Holidays – Daytime

APPOINTMENT TYPES:

Face to Face – You will see a clinician in person and be required to go to the service location

Telephone Consultation – You will be called by one of our clinicians during your appointment time. This will be from a withheld number and you will not be required to go to the service location unless offered at the time

When We Are Closed

Requests for visits should be in emergencies only. Please call the surgery and your call will be diverted to BARDOC. Alternatively you can call direct on 0161 763 4242.

There is also an out of hours service being conducted at Littleborough Health Centre by local Doctors, for pre-booked appointments only on Saturday and Sunday. For evening and weekend appointments ring 0161 763 8292.

You can also attend the Urgent Care Centre situated at Rochdale Infirmary.

NHS 111

Alternatively you can access urgent assistance by calling NHS 111.  A triage nurse will assess your situation and take appropriate action.  This could simply be by offering advice or where necessary by making arrangement for you to be seen by a doctor.

Out-of-hours services are generally very 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.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

NHS 111 Online

111 online is a fast and convenient alternative to the 111 phone service and provides an option for people who want to access 111 digitally. 

Your needs will be assessed and you will be given advice about whether you need:

  • Treat yourself at home
  • Go to a Primary Care Centre

If you need face to face medical attention you may be asked to attend a Primary Care Centre.
