Non-clinical cancer champions

Barbara Crowe, receptionist and Lyndsey Tunney, secretary, are specially trained to provide help and support for anyone affected by cancer.

Although they are not doctors or nurses, they can help with many questions you may have about cancer. If they do not have the answers, they can always point you towards the person or service that will.

It is important that anyone affected by cancer feels cared for in their community, which is why Barbara and Lyndsey volunteered to undergo training. Their role is to ensure you know you always have someone to talk to - and to guide you to the right services and help when needed.


Home visits

If you are registered at the practice and are unable to attend the health centre and need a home visit contact reception on 0161 241 2723. Home visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability. If possible, please try to telephone before 10am. A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange going to hospital. Please note we are always able to examine patients better and can do more tests in the centre. Please try to make it to the centre if you can.


What if the centre is closed?

If you require urgent but not life-threatening medical assistance that cannot wait until your GP practice re-opens, please call 111. Following a telephone assessment by NHS111 you will be provided with information about the appropriate service for your health problem. If you are unsure which health care service you need to visit, NHS 111 will signpost you to the most appropriate care for your condition - GP, local pharmacy, walk-in-centre, emergency department or an emergency ambulance response.


If you have a life-threatening medical emergency, please dial 999.


Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landlines and mobiles (pay as you go phones need to have at least 1p of credit, although no charge is made).


Making an appointment


If you would like to see the doctor or nurse please phone 0161 241 2723 or come into the practice to make an appointment.

In order to register with the practice you should bring your NHS medical card and also evidence of your place of residence, such as a work permit visa, utility bill or photo ID. If you don't have a medical card a receptionist will ask you to fill in a form and will offer you a registration medical appointment.

If you are unable to keep your appointment it is very important that you let us know so that we can offer the appointment to someone else.

Cervical Smear Tests

Smear tests for women involve an examination of the cervix (neck of the womb) to check for changes which occur before cancer develops. These changes can be treated and cancer prevented. We recommend that all women between the age of 25 and 64 years of age should have regular smears, unless advised otherwise by a doctor. Smear tests are usually performed by the practice nurse and the recommended interval between smears is three years - as advised by the Department of Health - unless there is a medical reason for more frequent tests. Patients wishing to check their results, and it is always wise to do this, should wait four to five weeks before doing so - the approximate time taken by the laboratory to process the tests.
