Primary Care Access Service - Tameside and Glossop

The Primary Care Access Service brings together what has been historically known as 7-Day Extended Access, GP out-of-hours and Alternative to Transfer* into one single integrated service.
Patients can access the new service through their GP practice, NHS111, North West Ambulance Service crews and other healthcare professionals. The service is delivered from five neighbourhood hubs
across Tameside and Glossop and is supported by gtd healthcare’s clinical hub.
Patients who are registered with a GP practice in Tameside and Glossop can pre-book routine evening and weekend appointments via their practice. Appointments are available with a variety of clinicians at one of the five neighbourhood hubs across Tameside.
When GP practices are closed, patients who have had a clinical assessment and require urgent but non-life-threatening assistance may be offered an appointment at one of the five neighbourhood hubs. Appointments are available at Ashton Neighbourhood Hub seven-days-a-week, between 6.30pm and 8am.

Pre-booking an appointment at a neighbourhood hub 

The receptionist at your GP practice can book an appointment for you at one of the neighbourhood hubs in Ashton, Glossop, Hyde, Denton or Stalybridge. While you may not see your registered GP, all clinicians have access to your medical records, subject to your consent.

Pre-booked appointments are available:
  • Monday to Friday evenings at all neighbourhood hubs;
  • Saturday and Sunday at:
    • Ashton Neighbourhood Hub during the day and evenings;
    • Glossop Neighbourhood Hub on weekend mornings.

The Primary Care Access leaflet is available here.  

*Patients who call an ambulance but do not need to be transferred to hospital following a clinical assessment, are seen by a GP working in the community.
