We understand that people are anxious to receive a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible. However, please don't contact your GP practice.
More COVID-19 vaccination services will be available near you early in the New Year and the NHS will contact you when it's the right time to come forward. If you're eligible for a vaccine, but are yet to be contacted, please remain patient. You will not be missed.

This is just the beginning of the largest vaccination programme the country has ever seen and we will make sure that the people who need it most (and those that care for them) are able to access the vaccine in a safe way with the least delay.

When you are invited for a vaccine, please act on your invite and make sure you attend appointments when you arrange them.

Please also continue to wear a face covering and follow social distancing and hand hygiene guidance as, until a vaccine has been fully rolled out, this is the most effective way to reduce transmission of the virus and help save lives’

Please be aware we have remained open throughout the COVID19 pandemic and will continue to do so.

In order to ensure we can continue to provide a primary care service to our patients, we made the following adjustments which remain in place:

1) All GP appointments are booked initially as a telephone consultation. The GP will offer you a face to face appointment if they feel they cannot treat you effectively over the phone. Due to infection control measures such as the changing and disposing of PPE and the cleaning of the clinical room after each patient, face to face appointments take twice as long as they used to, which is why we are doing as much as we can via the telephone or video. This approach ensures we can offer almost the same amount of appointments as we used to.

2) The patient entrance remains locked so we can ensure that only those who have a face to face appointment come into the Practice.

3) We temporarily suspended some routine services as per guidance from NHS England to minimise the risk of infection. Some of these services have now resumed so please call us if you are unsure of whether you can book an appointment for a particular procedure.

4) We are only offering appointments on the day at present. This ensures we do not have to cancel your appointment at short notice due to a GP being unwell or having to isolate.

5) We are asking all our patients who come to the surgery to wear a mask or face covering to help keep us all safe. Children under 11 are exempt from wearing a mask.

If you need medical assistance please do call us so we can do what we do for our patients.

From the 4th of August 2020 the practice telephone numbers change. Below are the new numbers:

Dial House Medical Centre – 0161 983 5777

Ellesmere Medical Centre – 0161 983 5276

The practice is open as usual, however, we have stopped morning open surgery. If you wish to see a doctor on the day, please ring the practice beforehand
