When We Are Closed
When Manchester Road Medical Centre is Closed
A doctor is always on call between the hours that the surgery closes and re-opens the following day and also at weekends when the surgery is closed. Patients are asked to ring the freephone out of hours service on 111.
Please only use this service if you feel the problem is urgent and cannot wait until normal surgery hours.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
You can also visit theNHS Choices Website for non-urgent advice and information.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
