Furthermore, our team may signpost you to the most appropriate care for your condition, including visiting your local pharmacy, walk-in centre, home visit, emergency department or an 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).

Furthermore, Registered patients across Tameside and Glossop can pre-book routine evening and weekend appointments with a variety of clinicians by speaking to a receptionist at the practice.
