Care Navigation

Sometimes when you call your GP the doctor may not be the most appropriate person for you to see. There are other health professionals who can support you and in some cases you won’t even need an appointment to see them.

Through care navigation we ensure you’re aware of the support services in your area and how they can help you. Your pharmacist can help if you’re suffering from minor ailments; participating opticians can remove your ingrowing eyelash amongst other things; and local health and wellbeing organisations can support you to lose weight, quit smoking and more.

The following pages feature the services available in Tameside & Glossop, the conditions you can see them about and when you should contact your GP. We’ve also included a list and interactive map featuring all the participating pharmacists, opticians etc. you can visit for support.

When you navigate through the following pages you will see the participating services in Tameside and Glossop. Each page features a list of conditions you can contact them about, with exceptions when you should see your GP.
